A. Perry Homes’ Wilmette Studio: So Much More Than an Office

The holidays are my favorite time of the year. It’s a time to reflect, to be grateful, and to celebrate. We have been entrusted to design, build, and remodel homes for many families in our community to celebrate this special time. We understand the importance of the family traditions that are made and special moments celebrated in the homes we design, build, and remodel and are grateful for the opportunity to create something special for our clients.

We demonstrate our gratefulness with our ongoing contributions to the communities in which we work. Our design studio in Wilmette was intentionally designed to hold events for local charities, schools, or community organizations. We created an organic rooftop garden to donate to local food pantries, meeting spaces reserved for community groups, an art gallery to display local artists from the North Shore Art League [1], and a 14-foot TV for educational presentations. In the past year, we have been fortunate to host Northwestern Settlement [2], McKenzie PTA [3], Central School PTA [4], National Charity League [5], St. Joseph School [6], Trinity Church [7], North Shore Art League [1], the Wilmette/Kenilworth Chamber of Commerce [8], the Winnetka-Northfield Chamber of Commerce [9], Rose Hall Montessori School [10], The Alliance for Early Childhood [11], and Wilmette Historical Museum [12].

Our new studio is an insight to our firm. It speaks to our core values and how we work with our clients. Built to be flexible and accommodating, almost everything in the space is moveable in order to be the right size for any activity. Luxury spaces were built economically by using creativity and understanding the nature of materials. We installed wide plank floors using a lower grade of wood with shorter lengths, which allows the wood to show more character and help hide wear and tear from daily use. We used durable surfaces like granite without the expense normally associated because we used remnants. Inexpensive tile was installed next to a small section of luxurious wallpaper, understanding that the walls are closer to your visual and touch senses than the floor. Everything was built to be durable, beautiful, and value driven. We created every space so it felt intimate, comfortable, bright, and ready for its users.

The naturally bright rooms, beautiful gardens, comfortable spaces and the latest in technology fosters an environment of relaxed creativity. We want our clients to enjoy the process and be comfortable knowing that we are there to serve them. It is truly an honor and we never forget it. Our homes are better because we have created a space designed for inspiration. Our clients benefit from our inspired employees. We believe the quality of the space where creativity occurs has a direct correlation with the experience and final product our clients receive.

The team at A. Perry Homes [13] is grateful to our clients for their patronage, the raving fans who support our mission, the community who has embraced our vision, the many organizations who have recognized us for our efforts, the many craftsmen who work to build our creations, our vendors who provide our clients with the best customer service, our families for believing in us, and finally, our competition who keeps us working hard so we remain the most respected builder in our community. We wish all a happy holiday season.
