The Wheeler Kearns Architects 'Lake Shore Drive House' is situated in Chicago, Illinois' Lakeview region. Its spot among the trees and water is deceptive however as it is more modern than natural, in part due to its breathtaking series of cube-shaped segments.

Symmetrical design schemes have been at the heart of numerous contemporary art projects, and the home development sphere has been one of its forerunners. Wheeler Kearns Architects capitalized on the design theme amid the view of Lake Michigan.

In spite of its modernist appeal, there are several features that remain unique to Lake Shore Drive House. Box-like staircases separate floors in a bizarre manner, as do the collection of grounded wooden panels that block the sunlight out in a way that few have developed, let alone seen.
