Tandem began construction on this 6,600 square foot single family home in the Old Irving Park neighborhood in 2008. The project marked our first collaboration with prolific interior designer Suzanne Lovell and saw the perfect marriage between old and new. The façade includes old-fashioned brick, copper work, bronze windows, and a slate roof that hearkens to the classic Chicago mansions built in the early 20th century. The home features geothermal heating, foam insulation that exceeds the most stringent energy efficiency standards, and expansive audio-visual electronic features throughout. Additional attributes include an ornate milled staircase, detailed woodwork and cabinetry from Crown Point, and upscale Waterworks plumbing fixtures. The project won the Crystal Key Award from Home Builders Association of Greater Chicago.
