Site Strategy

Stretching along the rugged shoreline of Lake Michigan, the layout of the Lower Shore Residence is designed to maximize interaction between the home the water.  The living spaces are wrapped in a window wall on the lake side, and shielded from the road by solid walls with high clerestory windows for privacy.   The glass box living areas are anchored on each end by monolithic cast-in-place concrete fireplaces.  Between the living and sleeping spaces is a four season room that anchors the middle of the home.
