Historic Restorations

MEB Architects has restored over a half dozen significant historical estates and homes. The projects have included some of the most prominent families and their architects in Lake Forest and on the North Shore of Illinois in the early 20th century.

MEB Architects has been blessed to work on David Adler’s Mandel Residence; the Laurance H. Armour Residence “Two Gables”; the Wilson and Noble Judah Coach Houses; and finally the Kersey Coates Reed Residence, which architectural historians consider one of his most significant works. Other commissions have been for homes designed by other note worthy architects from the early 20th century such as H.T. Lindeberg, Stanley Anderson, and Edwin Hill Clark.

MEB Architects painstakingly researches the home, architect, and all relevant architectural documents with the goal to restore, refresh and once again make the home relevant for today’s family and future generations.
