321 S Sangamon

Brininstool + Lynch Architects: 321 S Sangamon

321 S Sangamon

Chicago, Illinois


Characterized as a modern interpretation of a loft, 321 South Sangamon balances the spatial and material aesthetics of industrial architecture with the requirements of contemporary multi-residential design.  Tall ceilings within an exposed reinforced concrete structure create an open, flexible space free from visual distractions.  As in traditional loft construction, exterior glazing is maximized. Floor-to-ceiling window wall systems with integrated full height bi-parting doors shift the focus to the exterior. Translucent glazing in the bedrooms provides privacy and accentuates natural light.
