Glenview Haus Featured Projects
Historical Renovation Doors, Fire-Rated – Chicago Temple First United Methodist Church
Recently, Glenview Haus finished replacing the wooden doors for Chicago Temple First United Methodist Church, also known as First Methodist Episcopal Church. The building was completed in 1923, and at the time was the largest building in Chicago. Glenview Haus was able to replicate the features of the doors unique to their time-period, such as the wrought-iron clavos and ornamental decorative hardware. This historical renovation project is only one example of Glenview Haus’ ability to recreate the past in the present.
Modern Commercial Doors – 33 W Ontario Street Chicago Townhomes
Glenview Haus recently renovated the entryways of an unusual collection of luxury townhouses at Ontario and State that really put their front doors to the test. Creating custom modern commercial doors for these units required both a designer’s eye and an engineer’s mind. The entries to these modern townhouses sit on the pool deck of a high-rise, 14 stories above street level. This lofty location and lack of entryway overhangs mean that the front doors endure heavy exposure to the elements. As a result, these wood front doors get more than their fair share of rain, snow, and especially wind.
