Nestled in an inner city prairie, this former gas station was transformed into a residence and home office. The prairie theme not only gave it its name — the Urban Prairie House — but also guided color, textural, and architectural detail. Waves in the glass block, sweeping curves of interior soffits, and transparent dye on wood windows and laminated veneer beams all recall the grasses and flowers surrounding the building.
