The new home of Chicago architect Brad Lynch, of the firm Brininstool + Lynch, was recently featured in Interior Design. In the article "Urban Renewal", Nancy Ganiard Smith, writes "Tidy wood-framed bungalows and brick three-flats line a sleepy residential street on Chicago's North Side. Stirring things up, the new kid on the block is a house boasting a startlingly open, geometric facade constructed from traditional materials, combined in a decidedly untraditional way...

...Imagine a Piet Mondrian painting brought to life, with glass, brick, aluminum, and zinc replacing swaths of white, red, yellow, and blue."

She continues, "On each level, oak cabinetry separates the main space from a floating staircase of heroic length. The oak volumes take on a sculptural presence while housing bookcases and, on the lowest level, a powder room."

We love the amount of natural light the house receives and the beautiful lines throughout. Lynch also designed some of the furniture, as well.
