Adler's signature moldings and detailed millwork are showcased in the foyer, living room, library, dining room and front staircase. In the late 1990's, Chicago preservation architects, John Vinci and Philip Hamp, expanded the home by adding a seamless two-story addition that includes a gracious family room, exercise room, mud room, attached two-car garage and separate three-car garage.
