O’Shea/Sturtevant Residence

Oak Park, IL

3800 SF

This addition and interior renovation to a 1929 home in Oak Park was an opportunity to bring two different architectural solutions to the same residence. The one-story kitchen addition faces Grove Avenue, a residential street in the Frank Lloyd Wright Historic District of Oak Park. Here the stucco exterior matches the existing home. On the rear portion of the addition, we were able to take a different approach using redwood siding and large expanses of glass for the family room and master suite. The rear outdoor decks afford views of the family’s much-loved maple tree.
