Honore Cottage Addition

Workers cottage gets a worthy upgrade

Project Type: Addition + Renovation
Partner Type: Project Architect & General Contractor
Location: Chicago
Partner: Norsman Architects

This landmarked East Village workers cottage had outlived it’s 1890’s roots. The addition of a master suite and great room in the rear of the home and the dormering of the partially finished 2nd floor provided that desired modernization. Underpinning of the basement foundations also allowed for the owner’s extended families to have their own living space while visiting. The corrugated metal and cedar-sided outdoor space provided for a welcome contrast to the eclectic brick facade.
