Check-out these initial shots and please check back later as the we refine and add to the story. We have a lot more to share about this project, which we’ll be doing regularly over the next several months.
Without doubt, we are grateful to our clients for the chance to collaborate with them on comprehensive architectural design, interior design, and construction management (CM via WERK | Building Modern).
As a result, this project is realizing the full benefits of direct, daily communication between Architect, Trade Contractors, and Client.
Most certainly, this comprehensive project leadership ensures design + construction alignment, including evaluation of design opportunities and alternatives along the way!
We have a lot of projects underway with construction progress to report. This project, New Modern House 3 located in Chicago, is coming along slowly but surely. Original cement board siding has been substituted with brick masonry which is currently in-progress. The original color palette remains intact and the dark colored brick was a nice choice. Please check back for new updates as we try to keep up with all the new project news!
Another great design project is underway for this New Modern Renovation on property bordering Williams Creek. It may as well be a new home, as we are keeping only 20% of the existing house, but working to reclaim as much material as possible, and also integrate as many sustainable design opportunities as is feasible since our client desires a net zero solution. This property abuts Williams Creek but is actually in the Town of Meridian Hills. We look forward to engaging the beautiful site to achieve dramatic views and outdoor space – this view is from the wooded hillside (woods and wildlife not shown) 🙂
One-time exemption allows this major Craftsman addition in flood-plain designated area abutting the White River just west of Keystone near 75th Street. Amenities include new entry, kitchen, mudroom, home office, powder room, screened porch, wrap-around deck/grille area, covered balcony, new master suite, expanded childrens’ bedrooms, and revamped third floor/attic/recreation story.
This will be the place to be for 2016 summer river parties!

The design proposal for North Meridian Historic District Party Space transforms the backside of this home to make inside-outside connections. The party space is the main driver for this home design, which includes an all new interior, a new rear patio and grill area, a new outdoor pavilion space, and a space for pull-in Airstream/bar. The design concept works to enhance the existing traditional Colonial Revival design elements with a slightly modern interpretation to the rear. This is done by opening the new kitchen space directly to the inside and outside entertainment areas.
New Modern Home – Chicago in Indian Head Park Village is breaking ground this week. We are looking forward to seeing progress on this guy in the next 9 months. Thanks to our client and Joe Trojanowski for a good collaboration.
