The Seigle House is located in the Lincoln Park community, north of downtown Chicago.  It occupies two typical city lots and was deigned for a couple with grown children who regularly visit and stay with their parents.  Both in massing and exterior colors, the house consciously relates to the predominant neighborhood context of brick and stone residences.  For that reason its exterior façade is made of limestone on the ground floor and an innovative terra-cotta cladding on the upper floors.  The familiar colors and textures of these materials, sand-beige and orange-red, harmoniously blend the Seigle House into the pre-existing, residential character of the Lincoln Park neighborhood.
