An eight-acre site on the shores of Lake Michigan offers the ideal locale for this new vacation home.  The house's design is evocative of classic resort architecture while its Dutch gambrel roofs allude to the barns that populate this area of southern Wisconsin.  These traditional forms are modernized with a play of proportions in the windows and the paring down of details both inside and out.  Clearly contemporary elements such as huge expanses of glass and minimalist fixtures and fittings are juxtaposed against the traditional elements to create a house that is both of its surroundings and of its time.
