A bit about the Glasshouse and our location

For a day event or overnight, a visit to the glass house is a delight of the senses and an experience in iconic modern design. The house and studio is located in Champaign-Urbana, Illinois which is about 120 miles south of Chicago on Highway 57. Amtrak services C-U from Union Station 3X per day. The house is a 2,400 square foot,  3 bed, 2 bath home designed in 1967 by John Replinger. The home is a U-shaped plan with a central courtyard. Both south-facing facades are entire made of glass and look out to unobstructed views of a private golf course. The East-West facades are entirely enclosed except for the entrance which features another floor to ceiling plane of glass. The floor plan is divided along the two main corridors in the U – one is an open great room and kitchen and the other corridor houses the bedrooms. The openness of the rooms combined with the glass facades and shiny reflections produces an exhilarating spatial and optical experience which is unique to glass architecture.
