Formerly a three flat in the Lincoln Park neighborhood of Chicago, this single family residential rehabilitation is marked by three day lit double height spaces that punctuate the formerly dark interior. The double height space to the rear is a ‘glass box’ addition which features a double sided fireplace that can be seen from outdoors. The double height rear living space opens onto the rear garden and faces the pool house. A central elliptical staircase fits snugly into an existing brick bay.
