Architect: Bryan Bertola
Architect Firm: Midwest Architecture Studio
Location: Evanston, IL
Project Type: Transformation
The design goal for this renovated and expanded home was to provide modern amenities without a departure from the original home’s integrity. Therefore, original masonry materials and metal were re-purposed throughout the building. Marvin products made it possible to match the color, shapes, and profiles of the original windows, while offering energy efficiency and aesthetic improvement. They also helped create a clean and transparent connection to the exterior of the home—a crucial quality for maintaining the charm of the original house.
