Brininstool + Lynch’s new residence set in the dunes near Lake Michigan is meant to be little more than a viewing platform that dissolves into the woods. When their client, a single woman from Chicago, approached the firm to design a weekend retreat, the site they chose together was a pie-shaped lot in a wooded valley, on less than an acre set 100 yards from paved road. Though “in the last 10 years Lake Michigan has exploded” with vacation homes, says David Brininstool, AIA, the sand dunes and woods seclude the residence almost completely from nearby houses.
