Thankfully it's Friday and I thought since I'm sure many of us could use a little decompressing right about now, that featuring a retreat would be quite fitting. This is the Yingst Retreat, 4000 sq ft on a peaceful 16 acres in Michigan, designed by Salmela Architects. What a dream! It's heaven in the middle of a forest. Modern yet fairly simple construction that is not at all harsh, and quite organic with the help of lots basic materials like wood, ceramic tile and brick. Complete with sauna and bocce court, it's the perfect place to relax and enjoy life.
