Docomomo Tour Day 2017
In conjunction with the Modernist organization Docomomo’s Tour Day 2017, the Schweikher House Preservation Trust 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.
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.
50 min. guided tours of the house and studio are available between 10AM-2PM, starting on the hour. The cost of the tours are be $25/per person, advance registration and payment required, with a maximum of 12 persons per tour group.
