1610 N Honore St, Chicago Illinois
Located in Chicago’s Bucktown neighborhood, the project is an 1890s 1-story with basement 2-flat, that will have a floor added and be converted into a single family home- Resusing as much of the existing structure as possible, and as much existing material as possible. Where re-using material doesn’t make sense (such as old energy inefficient windows, appliances, heating systems), the most energy efficient replacements will be used. Other non-mechanical and non insulating materials will be selected based on the sustainability of their manufacture process (FSC lumber for example) and the healthfulness to living things (Low VOC paints and binders).
