Appreciation towards Balance Associates for providing the following description:

美国密歇根湖附近山顶的树林之上有一栋四层的望湖小塔楼。建筑师在这片美丽舒适的自然之地,用可持续策略打造出一栋与环境和谐的住宅。建筑师将主要的生活空间放在四楼,这里除了可以获得更多的阳光和新鲜空气,还能越过树林顶部,看到远处的湖面。钢梯是建筑的交通空间,除了一层车库,每层都有露台挑出,最顶层的大露台离地30英尺,无论从这里,还是从室内的各处向外看,美丽的室外景色都如诗如画。

High on a wooded hilltop above a lake in Michigan, the Tower House is the result of an inspiring collaboration between Balance Associates, clients with a passion for architecture as well as their site, and a skilled local contractor.

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. Two fin-like, metal-clad walls rise from the crown of the hill to support a 1400 sf three-story plywood box suspended a full story above grade.

As intricately detailed steel stairs climb the tower, they move from exterior to interior and from more enclosed to more open spaces, culminating in a breathtaking, glass-wrapped kitchen/living/dining space at the fourth level. Here, thirty feet above the ground, the clients enjoy views of the landscape they love, from either the birch-lined interior or expansive cantilevered decks.
