The Schweikher House Preservation Trust, in conjunction with Docomomo Tour Day 2016, is pleased to offer tours of one of Illinois’ hidden architectural gems, Modernist architect Paul Schweikher’s 1938 home and studio sited on 7 acres in Schaumburg, Illinois.
50 min. guided tours of the house, studio, and grounds will be offered on Saturday, October 8th. Pre-scheduled tours will run from 10 AM to 2 PM, starting on the hour. The cost of the tours will be $25/per person, paid in advance of the event, with a maximum of 12 persons per tour.
Come see Schweikher’s masterful integration of brick, glass and wood. Tours showcase an iconic brick fireplace, passive solar room, cantilevered construction, exposed wood beams, built-in furniture, a Japanese soaking tub, raked gravel courtyard, and gardens designed by the noted Midwestern landscape architect Franz Lipp. We look forward to sharing this fantastic home which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and recognized by The American Institute of Architects as one of the top 150 architectural sites in Illinois.
