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. Save this picture!© Steve KeatingDirected 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.

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.Save this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow lessCincinnati Live/Make Competition ResultsCompetition ResultsFocal Point Community Campus Proposal / HDR ArchitectureUnbuilt Project Share Photographs “COPY” photographs:  Steve KeatingPhotographs:  Steve Keating Structural Engineers: Projects Year:  Architects: Balance Associates Architects Area Area of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeBalance Associates ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesBalance AssociatesArchitectsHousesUnited StatesPublished on February 28, 2013Cite: “Glen Lake Tower / Balance Associates, Architects” 28 Feb 2013.
