Home of the Week: Basecamp SFH

Community Planning, Home Design

Chicago’s Basecamp is a transit-oriented, single-family community that integrates private, semi-private and public spaces with a modern, yet contextually compatible aesthetic.

Individual lots are configured along tree-lined streets with sidewalks that curve through the site and access centrally located parks.

Tailored to young families and couples who prefer the city but like the quiet neighborhood feel of the suburbs, the design reinterprets the traditional image of a house, while reflecting modern influences and incorporating high-efficiency construction.

The loft-like first floor creates open living spaces and is augmented by three bedrooms on the second floor and a lower-level family room and spare bedroom.

BALA judges were wowed, commenting: “Timeless but modern; incredibly iconic; really innovative; streetscape looks good; almost academic in its approach; powerful, timely; intentional design.”
