Family Gathering

Location: River Forest

Project Type: Residential

Completion: 2017

Located on a corner lot in the estate section of River Forest, IL, an empty nester coupled asked us to design a home for them to age in place and be an 'in-town vacation home' and gathering place for their children and grand-children.

A palette of natural and durable materials is used. Limestone, oak, stucco and copper are used to establish a timeless 2-story estate like home. Two low 1-story pavilions with large glass walls and deep overhanging roofs flank the rear of the home and form a series of warm and welcoming indoor and outdoor family rooms and connect person to land.
