Garfield Avenue Residence

This new single family home in Hinsdale features a limestone exterior, detached garage, large covered patio, large open air deck off of the master bedroom, and an elevator with stops at five different levels including the below grade half court basketball court.

The depth of the foundation and the requirement to clear span the basketball court area necessitated the need for non-traditional residential construction materials. The first floor construction of this home is framed with hollow core concrete beams that clear span the width of the basement. Additionally, due to the depth of the basement, an intricate waterproofing system was utilized to keep all levels of the below grade living space dry. 845 Design Group provided architectural design services from Schematic Design to Construction Administration.
