anderson anderson architecture create a tower-like residence overlooking lake michigan named ‘chameleon house’. the home is located on a cherry orchard and rises above the trees to peer out over the landscape. the home was designed as a single volume with a skin cladding made from recycled translucent polyethelene. this second skin is located two feet from the building and suspended from an aluminium structure that is used for window washing and an emergency fire escape. the material gives the structure an ever-evolving appearance that reflects the landscape around it. this chameleon-like functionality is the home’s signature trademark and namesake. inside the home is very open and warm thanks to light wood panelling which covers the walls and ceilings. the layout is staggered giving the home many floors. the living area takes precedence with a floating room on the upper-most floor looking directly out the double height front windows.
