Explore Bungalow Home Architecture in Glencoe IL
In the late 19th century bungalows began as casual California cottages, and the style spread east to cities like Glencoe during the early 20th century. The architecture has been adapted to suit the colder climate. Today, there are more than 80,000 bungalows in the Chicago area, representing nearly a third of the city’s single family housing stock.
The origins of the bungalow are in the Arts and Crafts movement, and they are designed to connect the occupants to the outdoors, thanks to large spans of windows. North Shore Chicago and Glencoe bungalows are often built with brick, though some feature stucco exteriors and wood frame construction and they are single story. The roof is low pitched, either gabled or hipped, with large overhangs. Bungalows often feature front porches, making them feel connected to the streetscape.
Generous expanses of windows often feature leaded art glass, but in general bungalows are simplistic in their design and detailing. Typically built with small, compact footprints, bungalows are cozy and often affordable as a single family housing option.
