Wilmette Residence, 1998 & 2003

This eclectic French Normandy home was originally constructed in the early 1900s on Chicago’s North Shore. A 600 square foot addition and reconstituted space allowed for an elegant open plan, an unfitted French kitchen, breakfast turret, and quaint family room. More recently, a second round of additions have converted the existing garage space into a sunken family room, new attached garage, and an additional bedroom suite. Using the original architectural vocabulary of white oak brackets, masonry turrets and dormer windows, the two additions blend effortlessly into the existing fabric of the home.
