Architecture Object Chicago
At this Meridian-Kessler home we completed a whole-home remodel and addition. The 100-year-old home features a very unique Spanish Colonial architecture. The age of the home and this unique style presented several challenges; however, the final product turned out to be impressive. The exterior of the home had several unique architectural features such as thick stucco, flat roof, lots of copper scuppers (custom made to match the 100-year-old existing scuppers).
The new arch addition exactly matches the existing arch behind it entering the rest of the first floor. The new master suite is luxurious and cozy. One particular feature in the master suite is the custom closet. We built a custom closet with sliding doors that is stylish and functional. In the master bath, we built a large shower and new modern cabinets. Though the master bedroom and bathroom feature several modern updates; as throughout the rest of the remodel; we also incorporated some not-so modern features. For example, in the master bath we kept an existing window. Also, the pocket door exiting the master bath is a refurbished door from the home. In the master bedroom, like the kitchen and living area, we installed the tongue and groove ceiling. Also in the master bedroom, we installed hardwood floors that match the surface nail flooring found in other parts of the historic home.
