Home Builder Digest published the ranking of Benvenuti and Stein Among Best Custom Home Builders-Glencoe.
“Benvenuti and Stein has a veteran’s reputation known throughout Chicago and North Shore. Best known for its ability to listen to its clients and provide accurate outcomes, the firm has a design process that involves the work of a project manager who has years of experience working with clients from the initial consultation all the way to the construction. The firm’s project manager meets with clients and the architect on a weekly basis. This smooth design-build process has become Benvenuti and Stein’s signature style and involves the traditional high attention to every project detail and the use of modern technology. The Winnetka home renovation is a great example of how Benvenuti and Stein uses its modern-traditional approach. Originally built in the 1950s, the Winnetka home project involved rebuilding the structure from the first floor to the roof rafters.
Alongside trim and panel details, the firm also made use of a classy blue and white palette to give the home a cohesiveness its previous design lacked. To bring more light into the house like any typical Californian home would, glass walls were installed to face the pool and yard. All of these new changes transformed the old and almost single-colored traditional styled residence into a timely and more breathable transitional space. This home was also honored with several awards including the Winnetka Home Preservation Award for Rehabilitation, Professional Remodeler’s Design Award, and the Marvin Integrity Red Diamond Achiever Award. Over time, the firm’s design-build process has been used on several other types of projects and home styles ranging from the traditional to midcentury to even modern Craftsman. Thanks to its flexibility, it has also been featured in a large number of publications.”
