The Beverly Shores Residence seeks to create an appropriate response to building in a sensitive lowland dune landscape. The house is located near the shore of Lake Michigan an a semi-wooded lowland dune. The topography is relatively flat, and the house responds to and accentuates the existing site conditions.
The two story house separates public and private spaces vertically as well as East to West. Public spaces of the house are designed to be extroverted in nature and they reach out to the vistas and sitelines surrounding the property. Small private windows relate to their spaces while public spaces contain entire walls of windows.
