1950’s Accessible Ranch Renovation | Skokie
This 1950’s ranch was redesigned for a couple, one of which had a degenerative disease that necessitated single floor living and subtlety incorporating accessible design features while maintaining high design standards. This included wide hallway and doors, and carefully redesigning both the kitchen and master bedroom suite. The design of the master bath necessitated discarding ADA standards and working directly with the client to understand his particular physical challenges to provide for a fully custom solution.
This project was a significant renovation and small rear addition expanding the living space into a full glazing wall looking out to a new deck. Both entry and rear deck include a ramp into the residence. New skylight added to the new central hallway giving light to the widened hallway. Every room was renovated and given an updated look, each bedroom having wood accents, new stone panels for the fireplaces and complete kitchen redesign.
