Sedgwick Street Residence

Chicago, Illinois

Located in Chicago’s Mid-North Historic District, this common brick, late 19th Century row house was largely intact, albeit with a series of non-original additions. The original two story plus partial basement structure was redesigned with a full basement, restored and expanded first and second floors and a third floor office and roof deck.  A sympathetic yet modern addition was added to the rear to accomplish this.

The kitchen and family dining area, located in the addition, receives an abundance of daylight with views into the backyard.

The former dining room, with restored window bay, links the original house to the addition.

A new stairway, with hand-crafted oak balustrade, links basement to third floor office and roof deck.
