Ivy Room at Tree Studios

 
 

Ivy Room at Tree Studios

Located in Chicago's River North neighborhood, the historic Tree Studios houses the Ivy Room and its annexed courtyard. Built in 1894, the historic space serves as a venue for special events.

Interior renovations were made on the first floor and lower level of the space to support in-house catering services. This work involved upgrades to the commercial kitchen.

The versatility of the space is enhanced through the integration of sophisticated room divides; these partitions make it possible for multiple functions to occur at the same time on the first floor. Renovation work extended to include interior finish updates, improve soundproofing, and create a pre-function wet bar space on the lower level.

Mid-Century Treehouse

 
 

Mid-Century Treehouse

This single-family residence was originally designed in the 1950’s by famed architect Edward Dart, and is a fine example of Mid-Century modern design. Our efforts involved extensive rehabilitation work and two separate additions to the original home.

Rehabilitation and Phase I addition work maintained much of the essential original interior and exterior character, while expanding living areas, improving energy efficiency, and updating select finishes and mechanical systems. The Phase II addition was a more radical departure from the original structure, dramatically expanding the size of the home while maintaining its integrity through sympathetic, yet dynamic volumes.

Contemporary Ribbon

 
 

Contemporary Ribbon

This two story single-family residence is located on a prominent corner parcel close to the village center in a North Shore suburb. It is one of three similarly sized homes on adjacent sites, each with its own unique architectural style. This three bedroom, three and one-half bath home has contemporary exterior features, a combination of masonry and stucco walls, linear fenestration, and flat roofs accentuated by deep overhangs that enhance the structure's linearity.

The main vertical circulation bisect the building, topped with clerestory windows. This ribbon of windows also extends vertically at the rear, beyond the main rectangular mass of the building, where it terminates at the base of the second floor to form two exterior terraces which overlook the rear garden. The detached garage is designed as an integral component of the site composition, both shielding occupants from the street and adding structure to the raised garden terrace. The first floor features a living room, dining room, and kitchen. The second floor includes a master suite with two additional bedrooms. The finished basement has a recreation room and guest bedroom.
