Blair Kamin is the Chicago Tribune's Pulitzer Prize–winning architecture critic and the co-owner of a suburban home that, despite waves of renovation, will never make the pages of Dwell. Kamin typically writes about large-scale projects and was delighted to turn his focus to a small-scale home rehab for a couple whose lifestyle is anything but conventional. "It was great to observe the direct connection between their quirks and the completed house."
