McEnery Addition/Renovation Elmhurst

Surrounded by historic homes in Elmhurst, the Owners wanted to make sure their homes expansion looked like it had always been there. From the street, the addition mirrors the existing structure creating a formal central entrance, while the rear façade has a more relaxed rambling English Arts & Craft feel. Traditional detailing continues on the interior, while incorporating an open modern plan that allows natural light and views throughout the home.
