This rambling shingle style home was designed by Morgante Wilson Architects, located in Barrington, a suburban village in Lake County, Illinois. The homeowners requested a large kid friendly family home suitable for entertaining. The architects thoughtfully designed this transitional style residence with privacy and functionality and timeless details in-mind. For the interior living spaces, the architects focused on the natural beauty of the site, creating an understated elegance.
