The project was to provide a new home for a family of 4 by renovating an existing 3 story masonry structure. The building is located in Lincoln Park.
The existing 3 story single family residence would be preserved in its overall form, but that the interior would be renovated to fit the new owners living requirements.
The concept for was a contemporary insertion into a classical shell, Minor design changes were made to the traditional stone work of the building while allowing the internal modern work to leak out to the façade. which would enhance a mundane façade and allow the two styles coexist peacefully together.
The interior emphasized and took advantage of the light that is not normally available in infill buildings. Selected walls were removed and replaced with glass folding door systems to open the interior to exterior living spaces.
