Perimeter Architects’ Yao Residence Turns its Back on Chicago Transit Noise
Another great design feature that Perimeter Architects integrated into this renovation is a sunken courtyard, which alters the view of passengers on the train platform. The sunken courtyard also provides private social space for the client.
Perimeter Architects’ response to the environmental site constraints (primarily the proximity to train noise) awed the judges of the National AIA Small Project Awards. On this same note, we are awed as well. Adaptations like this for homes in urban environments will ultimately help to provide greater density in our cities.
