Griskelis Young Harrell – Architects | Evanston Residence

Evanston Residence

The clients sought a sensitive rear addition to extend the indoor and outdoor entertaining areas in their historic Evanston home. The new spaces seamlessly flow from the historic main floor thru the combination kitchen and family room and onto a large deck overlooking the rear yard. Linking the addition to the existing home is a light-filled stair extending from first floor to the attic detailed to match the existing main staircase. Featured areas include a 14-foot long marble entertaining and work island, custom cabinetry with a backsplash-height window, and a wood burning fireplace.
