Skyhaus
Channeling the spirit of the home's original designer, the late Joseph Esherick, daylight and landscape were the primary objectives of this contemporary transformation. Central to the design is a multi-storied interior garden atrium that captures outdoor space within the home’s interior and pulls daylight deep into the spaces within. At the rear, a new lower level physically connects the interior to the landscape as the façade reorients both indoor and outdoor spaces toward the views beyond while editing neighboring structures for mutual privacy. Earth and sky, heavy and light, is reinforced through materials of concrete, wood, glass, steel and diffused light.

With a shared interest in exploring design across a wide range of scales, programs, and disciplines, partners Joshua Aidlin and David Darling started Aidlin Darling Design around a woodshop in 1997. With an emphasis on designing for all of the senses they have cultivated a diverse and collaborative studio that acts as the creative hub for an extended network of builders, fabricators, artists, engineers, chefs, and other collaborators. In recent years, the firm has garnered over 125 regional, national, and international awards including the Smithsonian’s Cooper- Hewitt’s 2013 National Design Award for their body of work, a James Beard Award, five American Architecture Awards from the Chicago Athenaeum, two International Civic Trust Awards, and several awards from the AIA, IIDA, and ASLA.
