Own the Former Home of Mid-Century Master Bruce Graham

New, 2 comments


Known for his distinguished 40-year career with Skidmore, Owings and Merrill, Bruce Graham has played an important role in designing some of Chicago's most iconic structures, including the Willis Tower, John Hancock Center and Inland Steel Building. In addition to designing some of the country's tallest towers, Graham designed this five bedroom Lincoln Park home in 1968 for his personal residence. Tucked away on Cleveland Avenue, the home has a stoic exterior and an interior that focuses on a solemn outdoor courtyard that is located in the center of the home. According to Crain's, Dan Wheeler of Wheeler Kearns Architects was tapped to remodel the 4,000 square foot home in '90s. The listing mentions that the home sits on a large lot, and the property's zoning would allow for an addition to the home, if a future buyer so chooses. The home hit the market yesterday with an asking price of $3.8 million.
