Wesley Avenue

Wesley Ave is a new-construction single-family home by Evanston Development Cooperative and designed by Remake Architecture. The home is oriented to be south-facing and opens up to expansive views of Canal Shore Golf Course and surrounding native habit. The 4-bedroom 3-bathroom home is planned on an efficient footprint to reduce overall costs and maximize exterior land use, yet the compact plan includes generous living spaces throughout. The primary bedroom suite with outdoor deck crowns the top floor, with a modern open stair connecting to the floors below. A screened-in porch expands the living/dining areas to the South and protective overhangs create additional elevated outdoor area shaded from the sun. The lower level has been designed to be its own self-contained studio.

 

The building is built from Structurally Insulated Panels (SIPs) to create an airtight, well insulated building envelope. This is paired with an extremely efficient space heating & cooling system and an Energy Recovery Ventilator (ERV) to provide continuous fresh air. It has a 400% efficient air source heat pump water heater, induction cooking, and is an all-electric home. Per the latest building codes, the home is EV and solar PV ready.
