Lightwells and a Library in a Chicago Family Home

Spotted at Arch Daily, a 2007 concrete house designed by Wheeler Kearns is home to a Chicago family of four. Vertical glass lightwells with reflecting pools at their base appear throughout the structure, truly bringing light, weather and nature to the interior space, while walls of windows overlook a glorious garden. Our favorite feature? The multistory library - having room for so many books is a true luxury...Shown above, left to right: 1. Two story bookshelves, lightwell 2.
