Architect: Richard J. Barnes, Jr.
Firm: Barnes Architects, Ltd.
Location: Chicago, IL
Project Type: Traditional New Construction
This Chicago residence began as a vacant lot just steps away from a controlled intersection. Therefore, the homeowner requested that the design produce a home that was as quiet and efficient as possible. Marvin Ultimate Clad Casements and Ultimate Clad Awnings were chosen to keep out the traffic noise, while maintaining a tempered space within the residence. Once finished, the home exceeded both the code minimums and the client's expectations. The high level of Marvin construction, coupled with proper proportions, colors, and hardware, all helped achieve the traditional French-manor style of the residence within a respectable budget.
