When two architects come together, anything is possible. Ed and Mary Glowacki moved into their stunning home in 2002 as just the third owners; the home was built by Jay Lockwood in 1910. Both previous owners lived in the home 46 years so the Glowacki’s have a record to maintain.

The inside of the home is designed with a contemporary flair using both mission and modern pieces. The hardwood floors, mixed with terrazzo tile are original and the woodwork (a work in progress) is stunning.

Proud owners of a 1948 Noguchi table and 1925 Wassilly chair, designed by Marcel Breuer, the living room is dramatic, featuring a myriad of colors and textures. The dining room is eye-catching and the simplicity of the kitchen is unique in this historical setting.

The Glowackis, not afraid of color, have embraced bold tones throughout the home, including their modern bedroom. Large paintings and glass pieces are used expertly in the decor.

The doors on the garage are most unusual – something you don’t see anymore. Homes in the Old West End are aged, but still dazzle.
