Chameleon House: Anderson and Anderson Architecture: 2006


While this home in Lake Michigan, MI, USA might not be particularly small, the majority of the buildings space is above level one, resulting in minimal impact on the land surrounding it.

Fixed two feet from the wall panelling, recycled polyethelene slats skirt the wall in an attempt to the make the structure’s scale appear smaller.

The designer specifically wanted the building to stick out from and contrast the landscape, this mimicking the local farm buildings lack of place in the surroundings.

The height of the structure is supported by the use of a steel moment frame which is strong enough to keep the building supported, while allowing for loft areas in the home.
