Tick tock! Don’t forget to turn back your clock an hour this weekend for daylight savings time, even the grandfather clocks!
Happy Halloween! No tricks, just treats at the office today!
Ship ship hooray! Shipping containers are being repurposed as the façade of our new Bulldog Cartage project. The modular design allows for flexibility and a unique finish on both the interior and exterior.
We are spiraling out of control over this staircase at our Marlowe Residence. The sconces and paneled walls of the circular stair rotunda were precisely planned to align with the cascading windows. An inlaid French limestone compass-rose is the center-point of the rotunda floor and is set to true North to the delight of the client, who is an avid sailor. To complete the two-story space, the rotunda is crowned with a domed ceiling and cupola, washing the interior with daylight.
This week, our Game of Throwbacks is revisiting our Winnetka Residence. Winter is coming, but even covered in Snow, this expanded and renovated villa sure does fire us up! #GOT
This home has a traditional exterior utilizing brick and limestone and features an abundance of French doors and tall windows. The interior however has classical roots in its organization and use of symmetry while the style is transitional with a modern slant.
Drink up at our new brewery coming soon to Horner Park! The walls of the bar are finished with Shou Shugi Ban charred wood, while the custom bartop is made out of beer bottle bottoms. Bottoms up to National Drink Beer Day!
Happy Fall Y’all! Tomorrow is officially the first day of fall! We love how our Deerfield Residence looks against the changing fall leaves. Get ready for bonfires, sweater weather, and pumpkin everything!
It’s easy to get caught up in the big picture, but as designers, we love to focus in on the details. This transparent two-level bay at our Marlowe Residence gives a 270 degree view out to Lake Michigan. Copper gutters, decorative trim bands, and a copper finial make this little slice of heaven in the house a perfect getaway spot to watch the sun set, even midway through the work week.
