Single family residence in Chicago displays elegant modernism with contextual harmony 

Both in massing and exterior colours, the house consciously relates to the predominant neighborhood context of brick and stone residences. Its exterior fa├žade is made of limestone on the ground floor and an innovative terra-cotta cladding on the upper floors. The colours and textures of these materials harmoniously complement the residential character of the neighborhood.

The ground floor, the garage and the front and back yards are enclosed by a continuous stone wall. The volume of the upper two floors appears to be floating above the ground floor being separated by a continuous band of clerestory glass. All of the four levels are connected by a grand staircase that is visible from the outside through a monumental four storey high window on the north elevation.
