300 Huron

Chicago Architects Brininstool + Lynch: 300 Huron

300 Huron

Chicago, Illinois

Unbuilt, 2003

The proposed 300 Huron is defined by various functions made apparent in a composition of forms and materials. Five volumes, filled with housing, retail, offices, parking, and restaurants, come together in a play of intersection and void. Each given its own material language, facade systems are calibrated for optimal lighting, ventilation, sound, and ecological performance. In some cases, a double-walled glazing system provides both natural ventilation and acoustic dampening from the immediately adjacent “L” train. Deep balconies and a landscape roof also provide outdoor space on the dense urban site. As a prototype, 300 Huron points to a more finessed and thoughtful way of thinking about contemporary high-rise construction.
