I received a call last August from Gleason Architects. They were looking to photograph a historic building in Maywood, Illinois. I met with Thad Gleason and Mike Koehl at their offices. During our meeting, Thad and Mike outlined precisely what shots they were looking for. As seasoned architects, they understand composition perfectly and it really made my workflow easy.
When I got to the space, I was very impressed with layout and final finish of the project. Remodeling an historic building is no easy feat. When I mentioned to Thad that I wanted to feature the work on my blog, I asked if he had any before photos. You will be floored as I was, when I saw what they had to work with. So, ‘what can you do with a good architect?’ Apparently, anything you want! Below are some of the before photos from the Gleason Architects archives and some of our favorite after photos.
I have also included the entire summary from Gleason Architects. Grab a cup of coffee. It is an excellent read.
If you are looking to work a miracle with your challenging project, don’t hesitate to give the team at Gleason Architects a call.
