Building Types

When it comes down to it, all buildings have things in common: the need for great design, engineering, construction, and management, when the structure is completed. Harmonizing those elements is a skill that translates to any building project you might have on your hands.

Grilled to order: The art of outdoor kitchens

At the 202-unit Niche 905 Apartments, Chicago,  FitzGerald Associates Architects designed an 18th-floor roof deck featuring a large communal grilling station adjacent to smaller individual grills and private dining areas with family-style tables. A nine-foot glass wall running along the perimeter shields residents and their guests from the wind. The glass enclosure “helps the space feel more like a room and makes it more intimate,” said FitzGerald’s Kristen Larkin. Photo: C360 Images, Jim Tschetter
