Laurel Avenue Residence
Lake Forest, Illinois
This new home in Lake Forest is inspired by colonial stone farmhouses of the east coast, and is designed to fit seamlessly within the historical context of Lake Forest neighborhoods. The axial entry progression leads from the drive, through the home, and out onto terraces overlooking western views of native landscape. The symmetrical layout of the main house is countered by a mudroom and garage wing, oriented to conceal garage doors from the front entry. The interior spaces celebrate family living, with a gracious family room centered in the home, adjacent to the kitchen.
