Wilmette Historical Museum


Wilmette Historical Museum


Wilmette, Illinois

The Wilmette Historical Museum Addition and Renovation doubles the square footage of the existing 1896 Gross Point Village Hall, keeping the original structure pristine and intact.  The addition provides for a new entry, between the new and old structures, new staff offices, an expanded research library, improved storage for the collections as well as accessible restrooms and access to all floors.  The design is highlighted by a three story atrium at the new entry and a full exterior 'green' wall of vines to the neighborhood to the west.
