Schaefer Residence |  Evanston, Illinois    This unique urban residence brings new meaning to the concept, “at home in his garage.” In its checkered past, this north shore home was a stable in the late 1800s and the home of Charlie’s Transmissions until it was vacated in the 1980s. Our design relies heavily on recycled materials, including factory steel windows and many artifacts and fixtures from the original building. From the second floor master bedroom suite, it’s hard to miss the open view of the sprawling garage below.
