We walked yesterday in the Yankee Ridge area of Urbana, a development on the far south side of town, where Replinger designs make up 7 of the 70 or so houses. Dot and Jack moved there in 1995, and Dot lives there today. Jack’s involvement in this neighborhood goes back to the 1960s, when the original developer, Sherwin, hired Jack to lay out the first phase of the street pattern. His first house there dates to 1968.
The morning was cloudy and wet after a night of storms and rain. Landscaping is now well established, or perhaps overdone, so the architecture is less visible than it once was or perhaps should be. Moreover, most of the houses are turned inward, focused on interior courts or outdoor spaces on the side away from the street.
