Barrington Hills, IL
The clients for this project wanted to create a family room addition to their home that would connect the living room and kitchen space while creating a dramatic room that would take advantage of views to their backyard and pool.
The addition is approximately 18’ x 18’ and is situated at the inside corner of an “L” shaped floor plan. Access to the outdoor patio is through two opposite sets of sliding patio doors.
Being in a corner posed some challenges that we capitalized on when designing the dramatic vaulted ceiling. The corner condition allowed us to structure the ceiling beam s to support a large gable wall with high windows.
As with all addition projects we design, we strive to integrate the new space with the existing home so that it would appear as if it had always been there.
