Eastwood Residence is a project designed by Searl Lamaster Howe Architects. The defining characteristic of this house is its contextual responsiveness. While contemporary in expression, it relates to its location in Chicago’s leafy Lincoln Square neighborhood. in a number of ways. Its scale aligns with the surrounding century-old houses. The generous front porch repeats a common detail of the block and serves as a spot to hangout and socialize with neighbors. The exterior’s board and batten siding was inspired by the wood cladding of other frame houses in the district. Photography by Cynthia Lynn and Tony Soluri.
