Lake Forest, Illinois

Sequoia Court


Designed to fit within the historical context of Lake Forest, Illinois, this project is a rambling single-story home with rusticated ashlar stone walls, slate, and dark zinc roofing to relate to the surrounding context.

At the rear of the home, an expansive raised terrace is nestled between two building wings to add additional privacy and create a large exterior living space. The interiors were designed with a natural material palette and include hand-hewn oak beams, warm stone, and reclaimed brick. Stone walls transition spaces through the home help tell the story of a home that is rooted in place and time.
