Directed to create “a sustainable retreat that reflects the timeless beauty and simple comforts of the area,” the architects responded by raising the primary living space above the dense surrounding woods in order to gain light, air and views of Glen Lake and Lake Michigan beyond. The central idea is to sandwich a 1400 sqft three-story plywood box between two metal-clad walls: this plywood box is then suspended a full story above ground level.
