Train Depot Revival, Evanston, IL
Sometime in the last century, an old train depot was moved and converted to a small house in central Evanston. Our project opened up the main spaces of the former station, exposing high ceilings and original brickwork. The new owners, a mystery writer and a non-fiction writer, both work at home, and require a delicate balance of privacy and an communication. This was achieved by re-purposing the vintage exterior windows that were removed as interior windows . An added challenge was the necessity to make the house fully accessible.
