[b]A. Site Analysis[/b]
1. Best view from the roof level deck is to the Southwest overlooking Chicago city skyline. Because neighboring building is blocking the view on the ground level, this view can be achieved from second floor and above.
2. View from the property overlooking open space to the north providing skyline of buildings along W Medill Avenue could be a unique visual attraction.
3. Large brick building to the west of site and a tall tree to the south of property (front of property) will potentially reduce amount of natural sunlight, therefore large openings are needed to optimize natural lighting.
4. Typical housing style surrounding the property is symmetrical gable roof style with drain to both sides of the property. While maintaining "modern" as the big theme of the house design, nod to the surrounding building should also be considered.
