Illinois First Lady Diana Rauner announced the comprehensive renovation plans for the Executive Mansion. Tribune architecture critic Blair Kamin applauded VHA’s “subtle but significant” design that promises to rebuild the appearance and the dignity of “the people’s house.”
The Illinois Senate has selected VHA to renovate its formal hearing room within the state capitol. As presently configured the room does not offer full handicap accessibility. Building upon our other award-winning work in the building, VHA’s renovation will bring the space up to code while replacing non-original elements with new, period-appropriate designs.
