In-Site: Evanston New Construction

Final Rendering

I’m really excited to share some information about my new projects in Evanston.  I am working with BKM Development Company- we are teaming up again after working together on the Farragut Houses.  The architect is Mayer Jeffers Gillespie and I am the lead project designer.  The project consists of 3 new construction single family homes- each 4500 sqft with 5 bedrooms and 4 baths.

The building’s exterior is made of steel, cement board and Ipe accents.  An interior open staircase provides a sculptural detail and is open from the basement to the top floor.  Above the garage there is a finished loft that could function as an office, studio or apartment.  Interior flooring is wide plank white oak.  Ceilings are pitched in the master bedroom and fireplace designs in the master and living room are modern using an aged raw cedar.

As a seasoned interior designer I know the kitchen is the heart of the home and wanted to create a sleek modern design with a retro-vibe.

Kitchen hi-lights include:

-Includes lots of storage including a large pantry and wine bar
-Cabinets are a textured laminate by Uniboard and work well with the barstools and decorative lighting

A few inspiration images for the kitchen design:
