Steel & Glass InteriorIndustrial Family Room, Chicago

The addition is a two story space evoking the typology of an orangery - a glass enclosed structure used as a conservatory, common in England where the owners have lived. Evan Thomas Photography

    Hello and thank you for your compliment. The ceiling is White Oak and suspended by metal cables off the steel structure above. We hope this helps and good luck with your project!

    Hi, great question. We sourced the metal bar grating for this project from a company called McNichols. They have a wide variety of products and profiles to select from. Thank you for your question and good luck with your project.

    Hi, great question. The steel hanging fire orb very functional - It is wood burning and provides enough heat to keep the heat the entire room, even in the middle of Chicago winter. Thanks for your question and good luck with your project.

    Thank you for your question. Yes, you are looking at the motor that opens the double-height glass and steel door. We choose to leave the motor exposed because of the industrial feel of the space and to highlight the operation of the door. Good Luck with your Project!

    Hello and thank you for your question! This is a tricky situation, but are a few methods to open windows that are out of reach. There are products which are essentially an extendable pole with a hook at the end to push or crank the desired window open. Alternatively, you could install motorized windows. However this is more expensive, and the motor while small, is visible. The glass facade seen in this project is a large motorized airplane hangar door which fully opens (see the image below). We hope this helps and good luck with your project!

    The hanging fireplace from this project is the Fireorb designed by architect Doug Garofalo and fabricated here in Chicago. We love the modern look of the Fireorb and because it has a 360-degree rotation, this is a fireplace that can be placed anywhere in a space. Thank you for your question and good luck with your project!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Eric Reinholdt, Architect added this to Design Workshop: Kinetic ArchitectureDec 16, 2013

Drawn from the idea of a classic orangery, a conservatory used to grow citrus trees in winter, this two-story addition to an 1880s Italianate villa stands in stark contrast to the building’s historic origins. An industrial interior and a rotating fireplace complement the high-tech aircraft door.

Let it spin. Metal chimney technology also allows the fireplace to be a floating object unconnected to the ground. The Fireorb by architect Doug Garofalo takes the prefab metal fireplace to a whole new level. Allowing a 360-degree rotation, this is a fireplace that can be placed anywhere in a space — it's like something out of The Jetsons.

Adding a Starck gnome is a great way to add a touch of character to this wide-open contemporary space.

There are some windows on the sides, but this large glass wall is the main source of light for the living area. Note how rooftop access happens next to this operable wall: A mezzanine walkway leads to a door that opens to an exterior spiral stair.

Love the stairs, wish the metal was black.
