City of Evanston Preservation + Design Award for Sensitive Addition/Alteration
his home, located in a historic district in Evanston, had been physically moved in 1922 from another location in Evanston. It was evident that a front porch was part of the original design but apparently did not survive the move. The house, now located on a generous 68’ wide lot, needed a covered porch to help balance the front facade. Additionally, the revised front facade would need to be more in keeping with the homes in neighborhood. The porch now wraps around to the north to allow the mass of the house to fit better on wider lot and the southern half of the porch has a motorized screen that allows the porch to enclose the porch in the summer.
