Set back from the street, this building welcomes residents up the solid front stairs and past its facade that reflects the clean designs of the Arts & Crafts Movement. The warm brick exterior creates a play between light and shadow, adding visual interest and depth through recessed masonry patterns. Limestone keystones articulate major window openings, and a landscaped lawn provides a spot to relax or absorb neighborhood activities all just a few minutes from Lake Michigan, public transportation and the mix of restaurants and cafes along 53rd Street.
