White Haven

Historic Renovation — Evanston, Illinois

A diverse palette of solutions enhances the stately beauty of this nearly century-old Georgian home. From artistic exterior ornament to custom handcrafted windows, landscaping, stairs, wall and trim details, and roofing, detailed touches establish harmony between the interior living spaces and exterior architecture.

The remodel and reconfiguration of the 1970s kitchen and dining areas better serves the owners’ passion for entertaining. Masterfully integrated with the cabinetry of Christopher Peacock, state-of-the-art professional-grade appliances, including an imported French range, make the tasks of hosting enjoyable. New countertops of luminous Danby marble link the space to the owner’s home state of Vermont, including its rich tradition of colonial architecture.
