The single-family home at 1625 N Wolcott Ave, which is part of the Urban Sandbox development, took the grand prize in the Midwest region at the Best in American Living Awards, a national contest in residential design, according to today’s Tribune.
The winners were announced in Las Vegas on January 19, so the news isn’t exactly traveling at light speed, but that shouldn’t detract from the winners. As one of the judges told the Trib, “The winners are the best of the best of the best of the best across the country.”
Urban Sandbox consists of four single-family homes developed by JODI Development and one larger multi-unit building at 1615 N Wolcott Ave developed by Ranquist Development. This 5,000 square-foot single-family home was designed by Osterhous McCarthy Architects. All of these photos come courtesy of the architect’s Web site.
