We had the privilege of working with homeowners who blend crazy good taste with a love of materials from the past at the Schmidt Residence in Chicago, IL.

From salvaged convent tiles, Thomas Edison Factory Maple, to fallen trees from the yard, this home embraces so much that is good, possible and sustainable in building today.

Equally important is that the homeowners, architect, builder and Urban team still had big love for each other when all was complete. The team of Scott Simpson Builders  and architect John Holbert set high expectations, and all of us delivered with out sacrificing passion and joy in the work.

We’d love to add a reclaimed touch to your next residential project!
