Red Diamond Achiever: The Winnetka ResidenceBy Berit Griffin
Integrity was fortunate to have incredibly talented architects and builders submit their projects to the Red Diamond Achiever Awards this year. We had an embarrassment of riches to choose from, but our winning projects leapt to the top. Today we are featuring the expansive Winnetka Residence.
Designed by Geno Benvenuti of Benvenuti and Stein, this house went from “blah” to amazing! The remodeling inspiration for this home was to design and build a home that complements Chicago’s North Shore architectural style. The house is situated along lake Michigan and therefore needs to stand up to the lakefront’s extreme weather conditions. Knowing that Integrity® windows are built to resist the ravages of heat and cold turned out to be a big factor in choosing Wood-Ultrex® windows from Integrity. The windows are designed to allow for a low rate of thermal contraction and expansion, which provides a tight seal with no leaks. Plus, the windows’ size and unique divided lite patterns added character and fit in well within this historic neighborhood.
