The East Edge Development is a lakefront community with a mixture of town homes and single family homes located in Northwest Indiana. Bauer Latoza Studio designed the homes with a focus on energy efficiency and sustainable design, including passive solar design, natural day lighting, and sustainable and renewable building materials.
The site design’s common open space layout will accommodate a children’s play area, a walking path, and gathering areas with council ring and fire pit. Bioswales and rain gardens were incorporated into the site design for stormwater storage and management. The landscape is designed to fit with the surrounding native dune environment while incorporating little blue stem, prairie flowers and grasses, and no-mow lawns.
