This new townhouse reconciles the character of the conventional Chicago streetscape and the clients’ desire for a design that accommodates modern space and a timeless sense of repose through use of traditional materials and a non-historical expressive language. Extensive landscaped roofs, sophisticated energy systems and productive kitchen garden are part of a strategy to embrace environmental stewardship and provide qualities and beneﬁts typically associated with the detached single-family house in an urban setting.
