The Parade of "Green Homes" is a public-private partnership
to renovate four homes, on a single block, with each home illustrating
different energy and conservation related improvements, such as
various insulating, heating and restoration techniques and materials.
Additionally, each home illustrates building modifications that
support specific directives for full accessibility, a beginning
family, a home office, and a historically sensitive restoration.
Sonoc Architects coordinated multiple planning and community meetings
in partnership with the American Institute of Architects, multiple
City of Chicago Departments, Neighborhood Housing Services Corp.
and multiple neighborhood community organizations. Sonoc provided
architectural concept sketches and produced final construction drawings
and specifications for each home. Additionally, Sonoc provided Streetscape
drawings, including revised parkways and curbs, street furniture,
and gateway signs to identify this unique neighborhood housing revitalization.
