Ravine House

New Construction

Set atop a deep ravine along Lake Michigan, this modern home embraces the beauty and drama of the landscape. An intermittent pattern of carefully composed windows within a limestone-paneled wall creates both a sense of privacy against the street and sculptural patterning for the fa├žade. We placed stairwells and circulation on the street side, instilling privacy, while still allowing light to filter through. In the living spaces, views of the ravine and trees create expansive connections to nature through every season.
