Living Small

Location: Chicago, Illinois

Project Type: Residential

Completion: 2006

We set out to design the smallest luxury residence in the city. Compact design makes this 1,100 SF home live large. The first floor combines living room, kitchen, and a huge fireplace into a great room. Floor to ceiling windows and doors open to enjoy a generous green lawn- quite rare in the city. A bedroom and full bath tuck behind the great room, leaving the second floor to be open workspace with a roof deck and large architectural skylight.
