Richmond House

Chicago, IL

Originally constructed as a single-story Worker Cottage with an attic above, this building endured many haphazard renovations. The program for our client was to modernize the home and add additional square footage while respecting and maintaining the traditional residential scale and street presence. We restored the front facade and split the main level so the public living space is at grade with easy access to the backyard. The first level has a guest suite that connects to the open kitchen/living space and the new master suite with balcony and additional bedrooms are located on the second level. More details and process in the blog post here.
