Blair Kamin, a Pulitzer Prize winning architecture critic for the Chicago Tribune, recently spoke at the Wilmette Historic Preservation Commission’s annual historic awards ceremony. We are honored to have our project at 814 Park Avenue selected as a winning recipient in the rehabilitation category. “A town that celebrates historic preservation is well on its way to becoming a better and more beautiful town. It’s encouraging its residents to voluntarily preserve and enhance beautiful homes. That raises the town’s architectural standards, which, in turn, encourages future construction to meet the high bar of good design. Quality begets quality.” Congrats to all of this year’s winners!
Check out the transformation on our Villa Blanco from a schematic design freehand sketch to construction documents to a photo of the completed project!
This custom milled industrial bar will serve our clients well at Bulldog Cartage. The new office will feature over 40,000 SF of warehouse space, open office space, and an entire level devoted to conference and lecture activities, where the bar will sit as the focal point.
Spending time with Mom is a great thing, but sometimes she just needs a break and a quite retreat. Our Villa Blanco master suite includes a private sun deck, coffee bar with refrigerator and snacks, oversized window seat for reading, soaking tub in bay, shower with 4 sprays and integral music, makeup console with TV behind the mirrors, 3 view dressing mirror, and a lock on the door with a “Do Not Disturb” sign. Happy Mother’s Day to all of our favorite women!
Rebuilding work is underway at our Prairie Fire Residence. Often in construction, things look worse before they look better. We think the Prairie Fire Residence may have finally rounded that corner. It’s exciting to see the rebuilding begin.
Hoppy Easter! Hop into this weekend and enjoy the beautiful weather!
