Identified by the New York Times as “the most prominent of the city’s growing cadre of ecologically sensitive architects” and by the Chicago Tribune as “a leader in the anti sprawl movement,” Farr Associates is widely regarded as one of the most sustainable planning and architecture firms in the country. Located in the historic Monadnock Building in Chicago’s Loop since its founding in 1990, Farr Associates’ planners and architects work in integrated design teams to create award-winning designs that provide the most client benefit for the least cost.
A long standing member of the USGBC, Farr Associates completed the highest scoring LEED Platinum house that is also net zero energy. The Yannell Residence is a modern and sustainable home that produces more energy than it consumes in a year. Some of the sustainability strategies employed in designing this home are easy for any homeowner to use immediately. Others, such as the greywater system, are ahead of the curve. Farr Associates welcomes the chance to build homes that are beautiful, livable and highly environmentally-friendly.
