Modern Tudor

After years in a beautiful, LEED Platinum-certified house we built for them on a corner lot in Glencoe our second build with this family was focused on finding a more private, larger lot that could allow them to spread out a bit.


Rustic Chic

With responsibility for both architecture and construction, we were able to infuse every detail with the energy and personality of these Northbrook homeowners – and there were a lot of both!


Resort Living

After years as a real estate broker located in Glencoe, our client and her husband dreamed of a home that would inspire frequent family gatherings and longer visits from the grandkids – with a resort-style vibe and amenities.


French Country

Old-World style meets modern luxury amenities, infusing first floor focused living with multiple amenities and an array of stunning, resort-style architectural features.


Modern Farmhouse

We designed and built this modern farmhouse for longtime Evanston residents who wanted to downsize while young to keep their focus on remaining active in the community.



This growing family raising 3 boys in Northbrook needed a home that could handle mud and sports equipment as easily as it could a houseful of dinner guests.



This was the first LEED gold certified home in Glenview – featuring sophisticated green technologies – while still creating a beautiful and comfortable home tailored to one-level living.
