Mid Century Modern Addition  |  Wilmette

This is the addition to a early 1960's split level. The addition encloses a family room and dining room, with a green roof set atop of the addition for maximum sun exposure. The existing home was reroofed with a standing seam metal roof.  A European styled steam shower area was added off of the first floor.

The overhang shades the interior in the summer while allowing the lower winter sun to help heat the interior. Solar blocking glazing was specified above the overhang to control the solar gain.
