Preview of an exciting project currently under construction in Chicago. The glass windows along the front, alley side & rear are consolidated to form a single “cut” into the black, brick volume. The exterior is dark, private, secure & monolithic while the second floor “cut” interior is bright & expansive for the propagation of natural light. Cut Triplex is composed of 3 stories, a basement, a rear yard & a detached two car garage.
