What Houzz contributors are saying:

This particular street in Lincoln Park has many older homes, similar to this one. Some have been restored and some have been divided up into apartments. During the remodel, Dufresne and his team had to consider the home's neighbors and how close this house was to other buildings. Dufresne created privacy screens on the second floor deck, adding tall fencing on the east side. Netting installed in the fencing keeps the children's balls and toys from getting into neighbors' yards.
Vanessa Brunner added this to Designer Sketch: Jean Dufresne
Do you still draw, or is everything on the computer now? I still draw. All architects must know how to draw by hand. Several clients will not be able to understand floor plans or other architectural drawings. It is up to us to sketch and represent to them what we are talking about. Applications like Houzz also help. We can scan for similar conditions or ideas and show them to the client for reference. The key is to make sure that clients understand the language of plans and drawings. We are the interpreters of their ideas. We make sure that the client is understood and that the contractor understands what to build.Who’s one of your favorite artists?Mark Ryden. His paintings and drawings are gorgeous and unique. They often make people uncomfortable. I like that in art.The most important thing on your desk is ...The picture of my husband. He is my biggest fan and strongest supporter. I would not have gotten this far without his support.What's your favorite classic furniture piece?The Saarinen Tulip chair and table set in my great-aunt's house.
