Northshore Houses: 1920s-1950s

Image details

The phrase “Northshore” evokes affluent neighborhoods filled with stately houses and tree-lined streets…but there’s more to Chicago’s northern lakefront suburbs than center-hall Colonials.  This tour offers a rare opportunity to visit four private homes: the Bruning house (Keck & Keck, 1936); the Ennis house (William Deknatel, 1941); the Drucker house (Harry Weese, 1953); and architect J. Marion Gutnayer’s own “rocket ranch,” designed in 1957 with a knowing wink to Le Corbusier’s Villa Savoye.

This bus tour begins and ends at the Royal Sonesta Hotel
