Evanston Historic Renovation

• Received Illinois Historic Preservation Certificate of Rehabilitation

This listed historic Evanston residence (c.1891) required substantial interior restoration work. The room layouts on the first floor were juggled to accommodate the needs of the new owner. At the second floor, a new master bedroom suite was designed from two adjacent rooms, and the existing third floor was renovated into a kid’s retreat.

The kitchen was built in its new location from the ground up: custom cabinets, high-end appliances and a culinary quality pewter island top were carefully integrated with recycled materials (including an old laboratory base cabinet used as the island base and a tin backsplash that used to be part of the basement ceiling!) to create a kitchen space that feels as if it always was there.
