Francisco Houses
Chicago, Illinois

The drawing to the left is a preliminary design diagram created to determine the most efficient layout of two single family houses on a double lot adjacent to an abandoned railway berm (which is approximately 12’ above grade). The diagram shows several methods of incorporating the slope and the berm into the design of the landscape adjacent to the houses, and methods of organizing private landscape gardens for specific rooms within the two houses.
