A Victorian Townhouse Extended
Chicago, IL | 1985
The 7,300 square foot townhouse is located in an historic landmark district of the city. The addition to the rear is enclosed with pinned multi-colored glass, aluminum panels, perforated screens and glass block floors and ceilings. Faceted glass surfaces channel views and maximize natural light in a dense urban setting. Major horizontal and vertical planes are tapered to diminish their visual weight and create elements that slice through the space.
