This lakeside retreat home situated in Harbert, Michigan, United States. Designed in 2014 by Wheeler Kearns Architects.
Tranquility and simplicity are at the core of this family retreat in Harbert Michigan. Overlooking Lake Michigan, the house is designed for a young family seeking respite from city living and immersion along the quiet beach. The site context strongly influenced the arrangement of the home. Challenged by the pronounced sloping topography and imposing neighboring house to the east, the design entails two shifting volumes that maximize southern exposure, and create a vertical “sun court.” The house is positioned on the lot so that each room connects to the layers of surrounding landscape, both natural and man-made.
