Client: BCH Oak, LLC
Location: Evanston, IL

Wallin Gomez worked with the client to create a display facility to house a large private collection of timepieces and stained glass from around the world. The ultimate goal was to provide a beautiful, modern home for the owners stunning collection of pieces and to share these with the public.Completed in 2017, the museum opened to the public the same year.

Wallin Gomez designed a new contemporary-styled, 10,000 square-foot building nestled in an historic district near downtown Evanston. The building consists of monolithic stucco material, with accent banding forming the majority of the façade. Limitations on natural light for display of the stained glass resulted in minimal fenestration. Windows are used, however, to separate the larger masses of the solid wall areas. The main entrance is on the south side of the building and is accessible from the public way and a small surface parking lot at the rear of the building.
