Driehaus Foundation Bungalow Award winners announced

The first annual Richard H. Driehaus Foundation Bungalow Award winners were announced last Thursday at the Chicago Architecture Foundation. Supported by a grant by noted investment manager Richard Driehaus, who himself grew up in a bungalow, the awards included first prizes of $750 in each of four categories - best exterior rehabilitation, best interior rehabilitation, best interior restoration, and best landscaping- plus four honorable mentions. You can view the winners (bring your Acrobat) on the Chicago Historic Bungalows website. Especially intriguing is this "Best Rehab" awarded to Loleti and Hensley Gooden, which added living space in the attic and basement, linking it together with this staircase.
