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 small footprint. The result is a tranquil vacation retreat that soars among the trees and offers rooftop views of Lake Michigan and the Chicago skyline on the horizon.

 

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

 

The sculptural form enhances the site by taking cues from the sloped site, the trees, the dunes, and dappled sunlight. We located the primary living spaces at the top of the structure to accentuate the sense of living in the tree canopy, and stacking the living spaces offered 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.
