Third Coast Beach House

Designed by Bryan Anderson

with Jared Banks

This Lake Michigan beach house courts efficiency from multiple angles – quite literally. A splayed floor plan opens views to the water and horizon, and divides public and private spaces into insulated zones to condition only those areas that are in use. Triple-pane glazing with a low solar heat gain coefficient retains conditioned air and modulates solar gain throughout the seasons. Folding terrace doors and multiple roof-decks invite relaxation in any seasonal condition.
