The Kitchen Building Townhomes

Ft. Sheridan, Illinois

Located in the center of the historic Town of Fort Sheridan, the rehabilitation of six historic buildings into 24 townhomes brings new life to these previously neglected structures. Freedom of space and light prevail in the redesign of these utilitarian buildings. Originally designed by Holabird & Roche and built as the cooking facilities in support of the adjacent barracks, they now offer extra-high ceilings, private outdoor areas, three levels of living space and indoor parking. All dwellings have two or three Bedrooms and two and one half Baths.

The historic quality of all six buildings is maintained through replication of original widows and masonry details. The new entry porches employ salvaged brick that matches the exiting building’s masonry. Every detail attempts to restore the original character of the exterior to its original configuration while also providing a comfortable and inviting image for the new residential use.
