Private Residence on Lakewood


The Home Builders Association of Greater Chicago:  2008 Gold Key Award

This custom single-family home in the Wrigleyville neighborhood of Chicago was awarded with a 2008 Home Builders Association of Greater Chicago Excellence in Housing Design Gold Key Award.

The 36 foot wide lot allowed for generous suburban-scaled living spaces and five bedrooms

in a relatively compact urban envelope.

The exterior of brick and limestone was inspired by the Georgian Townhouses of early 1800s Philadelphia and Boston.  A row of bulls-eye windows crown the facade and provide light

to the attic.

In addition to the architecture, SGW designed and detailed all of the interiors of the home.
