Chicago, Illinois



Inspired by the classic English townhomes of London’s Mayfair neighborhood, this new home in Chicago’s Lincoln Park presents a traditional architectural language to the residential streetscape.  Chicago common brick, limestone accents, and a standing seam metal roof provide a modern day English exterior, while the rear exterior of the home is truly modern with full glass walls, walking out to a terrace, and a floating upper volume above, clad in metal panel.

A fireplace in the entry foyer and a skylight over the 3-story winding staircase give a nod to the old English townhome, while the finishes, fixtures, and furnishings exhibit a fresh, smart aesthetic for a young, modern day family.  The central dining room opens to the stair hall for natural light at the home’s center.  The expansive kitchen extends to a large family room, which flows out to the secluded terrace and garden, designed to support day to day family life within the action of a bustling urban setting.
