Studio21 Architects was recently hired to design a second project for a Hinsdale couple. When our clients purchased their home, it had a stucco exterior that didn’t reflect their style. Upon inspection, the new homeowners found that it was not just aesthetically unappealing, the stucco also had some moisture issues. Rather than invest in fixing the issue, they chose to work with Studio21 Architects to transform the exterior of the home by modernizing the look and adding a front porch where they could sit outside and watch their kids play.
The exterior remodel was in 2015 and the clients love the new look of their home. From the new siding to the front porch, the home has been transformed into one of which they are very proud. The addition of the boxed out detail on the 2nd floor circle window makes their home unique and it’s a design element that garners many compliments.
The family once again turned to Studio21 Architects when it was time to remodel the interior of their home. When asked why they decided to return to the firm for their upcoming project, the homeowner replied “I was so impressed with Gregg and Studio21. Everything just seemed easy. Gregg was very responsive, creative, flexible, and patient. I honestly didn’t consider another company before approaching Studio21 about our upcoming interior renovation. We based our decision solely on the very positive experience we had with them on the exterior project.”
Plans are in the works for the interior remodel and Gregg has been meeting with the family to determine how to best transform the inside of the house into the home they truly desire. Working closely with the family, he is creating a more open floor plan that will allow the entire family to eat together in a relaxed setting while also enabling them to better utilize an under used formal dining room for both every day use as well as formal entertaining. The goal of the client/architect partnership is to create an aesthetically pleasing, comfortable, and functional living space that is a reflection of the homeowners’ personalities. Studio21 Architects is honored to be chosen for this client’s second project and looks forward to sharing pictures of the interior renovation in a future edition of Studio Pages.
