2016 Rice is located in the heart of Ukrainian Village, one of Chicago’s oldest and burgeoning neighborhoods. This new 8-unit residence is comprised of four unique duplexes and four simplexes above. The architect’s distinctive design is a response to today’s urban family lifestyle needs. Featuring adaptive open living spaces, abundant natural light and large private outdoor terraces, these units are designed to feel like single-family homes within the comfort of a multi-residence building. The space in each unit is carefully planned with three distinct orientations. Emphasisis placed on craft and detail, using the highest quality labor and custom designs throughout. The building’s exterior is clad in a dynamic corrugated metal skin that changes in color, reflecting the time and season and acting as a metaphor for the neighborhood’s dynamic history.
