Wheeler Kearns was called upon by the current owners to provide some strategic modifications and upgrades to the original Bruce Graham (S.O.M.) Residence, a cast-in-place concrete urban courtyard house in Chicago. Oversized exterior glazing was replaced with thermopane units with UV filtering and incorporating warm edge technology. The stair and second floor carpeting was replaced with douglas fir end grain wood flooring. Interior casework was introduced, all in deference to the existing. An exercise in reverence, and good stewardship.
