The Henry Receives ALA Merit Award
Nov 01, 2019
The Henry has received a Merit Award from this year's ALA Awards.
Immediately adjacent to the Montrose Avenue Brown Line Station, The Henry sits on an irregularly shaped lot whose width is smallest at the street. Using inspiration taken from the iconic "EL" trains passing by and the surrounding light industrial and residential uses within the immediate neighborhood, the building is broken into three distinct masses clad in corrugated metal, brick, and fiber cement panels. This approach to the massing, in combination with the challenge of the lot, works to reinforce the design concept that the building appears to be a collection of smaller building, a "little village," perhaps even created over time.
