315 N. Elm

Hinsdale, Illinois

Incorporating the planning and detailing of Shingle Style architecture, this residence exhibits a simple overall mass with character and interest through the picturesque arrangement of porches, multi-paned double hung windows and shed roof dormers. On a deep suburban lot with a vast back yard, internal planning encourages a maximum degree of openness among the main rooms of the house and to the outdoors.

The sloping site allows the garage to be tucked under the building. Inside, the main stair in the center of the home connects all the major spaces. Beyond the kitchen and family room, the outdoor porch overlooks the back yard. The master bedroom’s large dormered ceiling and asymmetrical window configuration hint at the subtle abstraction developed in the otherwise classic façade.
