Deerfield, Illinois

A minimalistic design approach takes advantage of the densely wooded land surrounding this single-story, single-family home, bringing the outside in. We designed a floating canopy roof as the focal point for this white stucco house. The wing-shaped roof was fashioned as a large overhang, collecting rain to irrigate the land and providing welcome shade for an outdoor room. Expansive windows maximize views and light, expanding the living experience beyond the boundaries of the architecture.
