Wilmot Residence

Illinois

This new single-family home, designed for entertaining, is organized in an open-plan layout.  There is a strong connection between the interiors and exterior garden spaces.  Each room provides views to the terraced gardens, while also providing privacy from the busy neighborhood.  The third floor opens to a large roof deck sheltered from neighboring buildings and overlooking the Bloomingdale Trail.  The brick facades and steel and glass accents craft a clean, modern aesthetic and enhance the crisp open feeling of the interiors.
