North Shore Addition
The owners of this striking contemporary house, which is characterized by the clean lines and soft corners of Art Deco, wanted more luxurious space for work and play. Canada & Klein Ltd. renovated the existing family room and constructed a 2,000 square foot addition which includes a lower level two-car garage.
- The existing Chicago common brick and glass block exterior was seamlessly extended to contain a new excercise room, a three-season screened porch, and a master bed and bathroom suite.
- An extra large sump pump was installed under the basement garage to handle the rain and snow melt from the heated driveway.
- A wood and stainless steel stairway was installed to the master suite.
- The master bedroom was paneled with custom, curved oak that conceals home office shelving behind the desk, and camoflages the door to the master closet behind the bed.
- A state of the art master bathroom overlooks the shady back garden.
- A "floating" fire orb punctuates the screened porch.
