Modern Suburban Luxury

Highland Park, Illinois - Midwest
In the prestigious suburb of Highland Park, Chicago, a couple transitioning from city to suburban life embarked on creating a custom modern home tailored for luxury living. Their vision was to construct a residence that distinctly stood out from the neighborhood's prevalent architectural styles, which typically feature classic Georgian, Revival, or Prairie designs. Opting for a contemporary aesthetic, they incorporated a mix of modern materials for the exterior, striking a balance between the colder, starker elements and warmer tone. To achieve this balance while minimizing maintenance, the couple chose TimberTech to use as cladding in a rainscreen application for its superior durability and natural wood appearance. This choice allowed them to enjoy the beauty of natural wood without the constant upkeep required by traditional tropical hardwoods like ipe.
