Built in a historic landmark district in Chicago, this three-story, single-family home is compatible in scale and style with neighboring Italianate structures. Varied building heights and window types, as well as two staircase bays, break up massing. Pilasters, cornices and expansive glass framed by zinc panels evoke the industrial-meets-traditional sentiment of the period.
