Backyard Andersonville

Chicago, Illinois / United States of America

Sited at the rear of a Planned Development located in Chicago’s North Side neighborhood of Andersonville, this small infill row home development exemplifies modern sophistication in an urban setting. The elemental palette creates a minimal and contemporary aesthetic, contrasting favorably with the recently built adjoining project, while still retaining a scale and flavor appropriate to the neighborhood context. The rowhome plan features spacious 10’ tall ground floor living space with floor-to-ceiling metal clad window assemblies and exposed concrete with hydronic radiant heating. The unique two-story format of the two and three bedroom homes offers 57-foot-long plans which allow the main living area to fully interact with the private gardens and patios in front. The floor plans vary between 15’, 18’ and 20’ wide offering variety for buyers. Challenged with providing abundant natural light throughout, the unique 57’ deep typical rowhome contains a central staircase with strategically placed large Velux skylights which act as a light well to bring light to the heart of the second and ground floor. The contemporary rainscreen facade is clad with durable fiber-cement architectural wall panels which contribute to the contemporary detailing with minimal panel joints with no exposed fasteners.
