Integrating the elegance of hospitality with every-day living.
Making every day a vacation.
A Victorian context was an essential component of the Lakefront Residences of Grayslake, and necessary for this project to receive agency approvals. Situated on the namesake Grays Lake, the look, developed in tandem with community input, is evocative of a grand resort or turn-of-the-century vacation destination. In turn, the planning and design of the amenity spaces took on a resort-like feel facing the lake.
Although the look of the building may be reminiscent of another era, the performance of the building is completely 21st century. It was developed with extensive sustainable features, including both geothermal heating and cooling, and solar-thermal heating for domestic hot water, which in turn reduce operational expenses for the owner.
