Kenmore Apartments Receives ASID Award
Holabird & Root received a 2011 American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) Design Excellence Award in Residential Green Design with the Chicago Housing Authority's Kenmore Senior Housing Apartments project.
Located in the City's Uptown community, the once vacant and graffiti-covered Kenmore Senior Apartments was modernized by Holabird & Root. The 90,000-s.f., 8-story building underwent a complete gut rehab to improve circulation paths and accessibility and create 100 new single bedroom apartments. It features such green elements as energy efficient mechanical and lighting systems, landscaping that helps manage storm water in an inviting, scenic courtyard, large windows to increase natural lighting and air circulation and a green roof.View all stories
