Program: Master plan for sustainably-developed community with a focus on preserving natural resources
The Kames at Elkhart Lake
The Kames at Elkhart Lake is a conservation-focused residential development designed to preserve and celebrate the beauty of its natural setting. The property is a unique example of Sheboygan County’s glacial kettle moraines, characterized by deep valleys and overlooks that provide expansive views of the landscape.
TKWA created a master plan for this community that concentrates development in smaller hamlets, leaving the majority of the land untouched in protected estate lots. Each hamlet is centered around its own green space, and each home is oriented to both open onto this community space and maximize views outward. Roads are kept to a minimum, and buildings are self-contained in order to preserve the serenity of the landscape. The master plan preserves natural features of the landscape and incorporates three miles of walking paths.
