Evanston House


Location: Evanston, Chicago
Client: Withheld
Scope: Architecture (New construction)
Progress/Year: 2019–Under Construction


This ground-up single-family house in Evanston, Illinois is a large open volume with a simple central core. Tall ceilings and a flexible space for both living and entertaining allow the house’s residents to both exhibit their art work, collections, and entertain. A generous basement allows for additional living space with the option of a guest room or caretakers suite. Monochromatic finishes throughout emphasize a range of unique, non-traditionally domestic materials which remain a quiet backdrop. A long row of large, clerestory windows inspired by industrial factory spaces let in muted northern light throughout the day.
