This award winning Chameleon House is a tower rising above the rolling topography of its cherry orchard site, peering outwards toward spectacular westward views of Lake Michigan, Manitou Islands and the surrounding agricultural landscape. The translucent polyethylene material set out over the dully reflective wall cladding is chosen for its ability to gather the light and color of its landscape, dissolving the finely shadowed and haloed structure into the seasonal color cycle of snow, ice and black twig tracery; pale pink blossom clouds; pollen green leaf and grass; golden straw and vivid foliage. The double skin creates a micro-climate and thermal differential around the structure creating a rippling mirage updraft that in the summer sends steaming condensation or in the winter drips melting icicles. This location is centrally located between Leland & Northport about 10 minutes either way. Just over 30 mins from Traverse City and the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. Such a desirable location and outstanding views.
