Edgebrook Residence

Chicago, IL

An interior renovation and rear addition to a Georgian “4 square” home includes a new family room, mudroom area and a new master bedroom suite above. Contrasting the compartmentalization of the existing rooms, the new family room addition opens up to the existing dining room and expanded kitchen. Large corner windows look out to rear yard spaces resulting in expansive views throughout. Stucco and stained vertical cedar siding was utilized for the addition while one brick wall to the north ties into the existing home’s brick while “flying” past the addition to form a landscaped bench. The lighter material language of the stucco and wood siding was intended to spring forth from the brick. The material pallet is tied together by a common eave line datum holding the old and new in a new balanced composition.
