Residential architects; Create your dream home.

Custom home project: Family Gathering

Located on a corner lot in the estate section of River Forest, IL, an empty nester couple asked us to design a custom home, citing 'in-town vacation home' as their inspiration. With our team of residential architects, we set out to create space echoing the warmth between grandparents, children and grandchildren.

Natural and durable materials inspired the home’s classic palette. Limestone, oak, stucco and copper were incorporated to accent the estate-like home. Two low one-story pavilions with large glass walls and overhanging roofs flank the home, forming welcoming interior and exterior family rooms. The use of space, color and organic material invites reconnection the world’s natural beauty, and most importantly, family.
