Montrose Harbor, Chicago
This is a new "floating office" with storage space for the Freedom Boat Club.
Waterfront Ticket Booth
Museum Campus, Chicago
We replaced a temporary kiosk with this permanent ticket booth. It is constructed entirely out of metal and designed to blend in with similar park structures.
Chicago River Stairs
River North, Chicago
We designed new staircases to improve access from the Chicago Riverwalk to a tour boat dock on the Chicago River for Shoreline Sightseeing customers.
Storefront, Artist's Live/Work Studio, and B&B
This building was a bakery with residence in the rear and oven in the basement in the 1890's, then a single-family home, and then, with our help, it became one of the first permitted live/work artist spaces in the city of Chicago under the newly passed requirements. We brought the building up to code, including ensuring proper separations between the commercial area in the front and the living space in the rear. We also renovated the living space to meet bed and breakfast code requirements, and finished the attic space with a new dormer and skylights.
Piccadilly Canopy Renovation
Hyde Park, Chicago
We redesigned this canopy over a 1920s building entrance. We removed a 1950s-era renovation, stripping the canopy down to its original structure, and designed a new copper canopy. The new design is based on the original design sketches from the early 20th century.
Michigan Avenue Stair Renovation
Magnificent Mile, Chicago (demolished)
Our renovation of these 1970s concrete stairs included removing a deteriorating stucco covering and detailing extensive concrete repairs. The stairs provided crucial access to the Chicago Riverwalk and the water taxi service on the Chicago River.
Milwaukee Avenue Storefront
Norwood Park East, Chicago
This was a gut renovation of a 1920s one-story storefront building.
North Shore Spanish Baptist Church
Ravenswood, Chicago (unexecuted)
We designed two schemes—a one-story and a two-story scheme—for a prospective new church building for a small congregation.
