Lake Michigan House Design by Wheeler Kearns Architects

This house located in side of Lake Michigan in Michigan. Designed by Wheeler Kearns Architects, the house has relax area with pool view, sitting on a chair while enjoying the view of the sky and the pond provides a quiet atmosphere. The exterior materials consisting of ipe, copper, weathering and stainless steel were selected for their longevity and low maintenance characteristics as well as their beauty. The interior is similarly durable and low maintenance with its use of pine siding; ipe, basalt and cork flooring; basalt countertops and translucent glass shower enclosures. The interior is conditioned with a geo and solar thermal heating and cooling system. Provisions have been made to accommodate a future wind turbine for power generation. The living and dining rooms are on the first floor with bedrooms and a family room on the second. A separate guest quarter is provided above the garage to the north. The boardwalk which connects the two extends south to the screen porch and beach path beyond.

Omaha Beach House, Holiday House Design by Pete Bossley Architects

August 08, 2013 By: archinhome Category: Beach House Design, Home Design

Omaha Beach House, Holiday House was designed by Pete Bossley Architects, located in Omaha Beach. Materials were chosen to offer a sense of directness: concrete floor, pre-cast concrete wall panels, anodized aluminium joinery and louvres, stained plywood panels. The way natural light enters the house becomes important to enliven the materials and spaces, whether directly through the large upper level glazing, dappled by the adjustable louvres or timber screen, or through the milky white translucent glass around the dining area. A heightened awareness of shifting weather patterns arises from the play of light and cloud shadow on the interior surfaces.
