TREE HOUSE - BEVERLY SHORES

Beverly Shores, IN

2,200 sf, 3 bed, 2 bath 

New Construction

This home sits atop a sloping wooded site nestled into the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. To minimize the impact on the environment, much of which is federally protected dune, we designed a vertical home with a minimal footprint. The result is a tranquil vacation retreat that soars among the trees and offers views of Lake Michigan and the Chicago skyline.

 

Drawing on the town’s history of progressive architecture, this four-story structure stacks living spaces on top of each other. This design offers viewpoints at different elevations and directions. Every space has an aperture with a unique perspective of the landscape, strengthening its connection with nature.

 

The sculptural form enhances the site by taking cues from the dunes, the trees, and dappled sunlight. We located the primary living spaces at the top of the structure to accentuate the feeling of living in the tree canopy. Stacking the living spaces also offered a cost-effective solution to building on a challenging site.

 

Sustainable elements include a high-performing thermal envelope, durable materials, LED lighting, radiant floor heating, and native plantings.
