Dixon Chapple

Madeline Island, Wisconsin


Residential Architecture

The Dixon Chapel is a small guest cabin on Madeline Island, Wisconsin. The design takes advantage of lake views by orienting the major glass openings and a porch along the lakeside edge of the efficient home. A post and beam structure elevates the cabin above the forest floor. The layout of the Dixon Chapel encourages circulation between indoors and outdoors, connecting visitors with the idyllic landscape.
