Algonquin House

Algonquin, IL United States

Architect Jeff Whyte + Assoc. Inc.


Project Description

The clients wanted a modern house that still had warmth and comfort. The land sloped down hill from the street offering more challenges. The concept surrounded a three part structure where the floors would offset for each section, giving a total of 6 levels to the house. But don't t let this scare you. It was done subtly and with organic flow. Natural rock for from Wisconsin was sourced for the exterior to give just the right color and texture. Glass was used extensively to bring in the outdoors. Offsets in the glass were inspired by the trees the dot the land heavily.
