On Saturday we attended an event at 4227 S. St. Lawrence in Chicago's Bronzeville neighborhood. There we met the partners in Om Development . Shunning the "green" designation, they have opted instead for "high performance house". We're fine with that. This picture is of the back of the house; having been unable to save it in the renovation, they rebuilt it using the same Chicago-style bricks, and added this great fenestration, which contributes wonderfully to the air flow and light inside the house. We applaud developers who are going green; we can't do it right without them.
