HP Davis Rockwell House / HP Davis Rockwell

The house was designed by HP Davis Rockwell of the Brenner Danforth Rockwell firm back in 1964 for his own use. The architect was a student of Mies van der Rohe and his modernist ideas obviously rubbed off on the pupil.

According to Curbed Chicago the design was a notable one back in the day too, with the American Institute of Architects presenting an award for its design back in 1965.

Some updating and maintaining has been undertaken over the following 50 years but by and large, this isn’t far off the original, with period features at pretty much every turn.

The house is up for sale with an asking price of $619,000, which works out at just £390,000 if you fancy the move to Illinois — via WowHaus
