metalhouseKnown simply as the METALhouse (1) in Evanston, this home can’t be missed if you drive down Asbury Avenue.  Located just off Asbury at 1220 Main St., two homes of this unusual, angular metal-clad style in an Evanston Historic district.

The METALhouse was designed and developed by Andrew Spatz of the Berry & Spatz architecture firm and was listed as $689,000 on the website as of 1/1/2009.  Mr. Spatz is also currently building a home similar in style next door for himself dubbed METALhouse (2) at 1216 Main Street.  A new 2 story single-family residence, this home will further explore modern architecture, creating a stimulating environment for another Evanston family.  Solar and green architecture techniques will be further explored according to the spaceevanston.com website.

METALhouse (1) was built in 1985 and features a live-work arrangement with a 900 square foot office / studio.  The architect offers the potential buyers the option to include design/build modifications to the interior of the home ‘consistent with the building’s original intent’.
