Chicago's Old Town

A house on Howe Street.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

This house, farther north on Howe Street, is a creative reuse of an old building. The architects preserved the front and inserted a modern brick and glass box behind it. Note the view of the latter through the third-floor opening on the front elevation; in effect, the preserved section is a shell, a hollow outdoor room that acts as a transition between the street and the interior beyond.
