• A 5,000 square foot plus basement, single family residence located on a cul-de-sac, adjacent to a golf course in an older, in-ring suburb of Chicago. The property is triangular in shape and the house responds directly to the site conditions by subdividing the land into 4 distinct exterior spaces with interior spaces responding and interacting with those spaces.  The front yard addresses the terminus of the street with a formal facade.  The attached garage is masked with corten steel and the approach to the entry is indirect, but apparent.  The west side of the house fronts an Japanese style court with the view towards a line of trees and the golf course runway beyond.
