Lake Superior Celebration

Project: Green-Hendrickson Renovation

Location: Lakeshore Drive, Calumet, Michigan

Designer: Dave Bach

Builder: Dave Bach Construction

Located on the beautiful shoreline of Lake Superior, this house began as a summer cabin built from salvaged mining company housing. Over the years, a series of additions and renovation resulted in a collection of poorly flowing spaces and incongruent finishes.

Design Highlights

  • Open the core of the house into a minimally divided living, dining, kitchen, and entry and direct the focus toward the lake
  • Celebrate the shoreline by incorporating natural materials from that environment – Contemporary design with Asian overtones
  • Give the space a lively feel by introducing and mixing various shapes and patterns and adding flecks of color
  • Make the kitchen functional yet not overbearing in cabinetry and appliances
  • Upgrade the building envelope during reconstruction
