House in Chicago

Chicago , Illinois / United States of America

This 2,000 square foot house champions the delight of architectural space.  The two principal stories connect with a stairway on one side and an atrium on the other., rising to a tent-like ceiling. The master suite faces directly onto large northern windows designed in the shape of a prow.  The
resulting atrium is a prallelagram.   Light pours into the house casting soft shadows.  At night, the 
interior reveals itself to the street.  

Materials for the floors are oak and bamboo for warmth.  Panels and built in components of the house are sprayed lacquer painted in place.  Color and form support theoretical and metaphorical intent.
