Bluff Residence

Winnetka, Illinois

About the Project

This custom residence on Chicago’s North Shore is sited on the edge of a bluff 80 feet above Lake Michigan. Built in a style that respects many of the great classical traditions of this area, the house is designed to maximize stunning views of the lakefront throughout. The formal entertaining functions are centralized off of the main entry hall and gallery spaces; the main family wing extends from the rear of the house towards the bluff edge offering prime views as part of the family’s everyday living experience.
