Lake Forest Residence, 1997

This single family home in East Lake Forest, Illinois derives its inspiration from the client’s travels through the French countryside and the manor homes which dotted the landscape. This residence effortlessly integrates natural materials and textures of brick, true stucco, stone, clay tile roof, and reclaimed barn wood creating a sense of timelessness inherent to this architectural style. This home’s understated elegance is based on simple proportions and a generous use of the above stated materials.
