This contemporary lake house in Wilmette, designed by Morgante Wilmette architects Wilson Architects, reimagines a traditional Tudor style front exterior to blend seamlessly into its neighborhood and the adjacent homes. A large rear wall of glass showcases sweeping views of Lake Michigan. The interior combines reclaimed materials, including cypress from pickle barrels (siding), recycled gym flooring (basement), walnut from barns (cabinetry), and maple from demolished school woodwork for floors and stairs.

The Baha’i religion chose Wilmette to host the first temple in America outside of its native Turkmenistan homeland in 1903. Over a decade passed before construction began, and the temple was completed in 1920, becoming one of the most significant buildings to be constructed in the United States at the time. The temple’s asymmetrical form and the use of light to illuminate the interior are inspired by the Baha’i faith’s philosophy.
