In the shadow of the elevated tracks in the heart of the Fulton Market area of Chicago, a furniture designer and his business partner, a large format sculptor, have asked NCA to design the expansion of their individual residences and places of work.

Located on two contiguous 25’ x 181’ lots, the expansion doubles the size of the facility from 10,000 to 20,000 square feet including office, showroom and two residences.  Residences will be duplex units plus a penthouse space which leads to large roof  decks and green roofs that are oriented toward views to the Chicago skyline.  The Owners plan on incorporating solar water heating, photovoltaics for generation of electricity along with other sustainable features.
