Fairfield Residence
Chicago, Illinois

Renovation of a Chicago bungalow: Chicago bungalows are a outgrowth of the larger and more elaborate worker's cottages of the late nineteenth century. Floor plans are often identical with the public spaces - living, dining and kitchen - on one side of the building and small bedrooms on the other. The renovation includes a new steel/wood stair and rail and structural bracing to strengthen the new 2-story open area.
