With this project, Nicholas Clark Architects has shown us just how much we can do with a limited lot in a crowded urban area. The Courtland Residence covers a 7,800 square foot area and rises three stories high. It’s a perfect home for a family with three children and it boasts two courtyards.
Large windows allow a lot of natural light to illuminate the house, while the walls facing the road ensure privacy, exactly where it is most needed. The interior court features a swimming pool and other water elements that create a special atmosphere.
Inside everything is neat and tidy, dominated by clear lines and modern design elements. Natural materials like brick, stone and wood give the house a warm appearance, and so do the color schemes inside. What do you think about this Chicago residence?
