Leading Tower

Tower House - tiny house in Chicago

The Tower House may not be tiny at 1,152 square feet, but it sure has a small footprint as it sits on a tremendously cozy 0.038 acre lot. The steel-framed structure has been awarded the 2001 American Architecture Award (Chicago Atheneaum) and 2001 Design Excellence Award (Chicago AIA), in addition to being featured in numerous books and magazines.
