Beach House Luxury Residence – 516 Sheridan Rd, Wilmette, IL, USA ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

Summary

Designed to encapsulate the atmosphere of modern contemporary West Coast beachside luxury living, this elegantly conceived residence is located in the northern suburbs of Chicago. Sited on the shore of Lake Michigan, the exceptionally conceived residence is composed of a mostly buried underground structure creating a synergetic relationship with the landscape with the monumental house weaving its way down to the water.

The house consists of four levels. A two-story structure, windowless on the street, contains the garage, a gym, and a guest suite. This faรงade is un-residential in scale, but acts as foil to the monument of the residence. Almost an inversion of its grand scale, the main house entry is located at the top of the stairs with the spaces of the house revealing themselves on the way down to the beach below. As one descends down the processional light filled stairway the house gives itself away, beneath the typical American suburban lawn above. The architecture creates an experience, where the whole is pieced together through oneโ€™s mental landscape of moving down and through the house.

The House to the Beach is about the transition from suburban streets to lakeside beachfront of its extraordinary location. There are overlapping journeys provided by the house, from working world to family life, from formal to informal, from public to private worlds.
