House for an Artist, Chicago, IL
This hand-crafted house on a triple-lot in Chicago is an ongoing collaboration between artist-owner, artisan-carpenters, and our studio. No space conforms to conventional expectations, but each is tailored to the creative activities that take place there. A flexible, open first floor allows for gradations of interactivity between dining, writing, designing, and socializing. The loft-like second floor contains a painting studio, bathrooms, and a bedroom suite opening to a sun deck with outdoor shower.
