The Quadro-plex: A Progressive 21st Century Habitat

Florian Architects has designed a prototype for four duplexes on a double lot in Chicago. L-shaped units that interlock provide:

* 50 foot exposures and double height spaces allowing more natural light into the interior and wide views of the garden and street;

* shared amenities, such as a fitness center, game room, multi-media or office space, enhance resident interaction as well as the building's efficiency and sustainability;

* decks and gardens on the garage roof, building roof, and at street level

* options for occupancy during every stage of life—young adult, family with children, empty nester, senior

* opportunity to share living space with family members across generations—parents, children, grandparents
