This proposal showcases the highest tenets of a successful missing middle project. A sophisticated site plan carefully breaks down the scale of the block and transitions into the existing neighborhood. A smart use of building types combines mixed use, live-work and residential typologies with a clear understanding of the potential needs of the surrounding community. Restrained but thoughtful sustainable practices and use of open space make this a transformative project on all levels.

Merit Winner

Assembly Required

Edward Deegan Architects
Kenilworth, IL

This project highlights an assembly of forms that could easily be applied to other sites of a similar scale. While challenging the status quo of parking requirements and providing maximum versatility, the typologies within this proposal could be situated in numerous ways and treated with a range of facade styles to respond appropriately to the surrounding context. The development further explores innovative ideas for tactical retail, public corridor space and modular design.

Honorable Mention for Image (Presentation)

Turning the Court

Christopher Fagan & Nick Rolinski

A compelling package of beautiful graphics that present a well executed courtyard typology. This building thoughtfully engages the street and its neighbors while displaying a character that equally sets it apart but blends with the surrounding context.
