219 S Third – Demolished

A striking 1965 modern chalet sits near the base of Shadow Mountain and original ski lift No. 1 at 219 S. Third Street. The large duplex was designed as a second home for a Wisconsin family by their “hometown” architect Eric Friis (b. 1916, Copenhagen, Denmark; practiced in Eagle River, Wisconsin). It has a low-pitched, gabled roof that sweeps down to encompass flanking car ports, a façade of rectilinear glass panels and board-and-batten, and a deck oriented to the mountain.
