ARCADY // Welch Architecture
Located in a traditional 1930s neighborhood, this two-story modern residence includes active and passive forms of sustainable living and is designed to be the first LEED Platinum Certified residence in Highland Park.
A stone, stucco, and glass facade faces the street and shields large expanses of glass open to the entry court. Beyond the facade, the open living and dining room creates a sense of continuity between the entry and backyard. The warm tiger wood floors and Hackett fieldstone plane extend through the space, contrasting the metal of the exposed structure and glass. The second story contains the media room, bedrooms, and office. The street-facing master bedroom windows extend from waist height, for privacy, to the butterfly roof. This provides ample east light and views to the surrounding neighborhood.
