Wheeler Kearns Architects

Chicago based Wheeler Kearns Architects design homes that are works of art for any modernist. This first home before the jump is STUNNING from the outside in. Built in the 1870's, this two-story brick and wood frame single family residence is located in a landmark district of Chicago. Although exterior changes visible from the street are restricted by landmark guidelines, the project included a complete gut renovation of the interior and the removal of a 1980's two-story addition in the rear yard. The newly opened interior space is defined and vertically connected by a central two-story volume that is naturally lit from a series of skylights above. The central volume contains the home's service spaces and is carved to reveal an open stair whose landing extends to form the kitchen counter. A wall of cabinetry on the west compliments the stark gallery wall on the east.

Bovina House

Proving the point that simpler is sometimes better. The main structure of this home in the Catskills (NY) is a timber frame from an nineteenth century barn that has been restored and raised on this new site. The very basic configuration and architecture makes complete sense in these surroundings, and draws attention to the beauty of the original structure's timber. By Kimberly Peck.
