Belli Residence / Wadsworth, IL
Design without limitation

Architect Jim Belli has helped create unique and award-winning buildings of all kinds, so when it came to designing his own home, he certainly didn’t want to be limited by standard-sized windows.

“There was no question about the windows I would use. Not many companies could build a product to fit this home, and I knew Marvin would really stand behind their windows," said Belli.

Marvin was the first and only choice for Architect Jim Belli’s own residence

Project Highlights

  • A curved wall of windows on the first floor creates the feel of an open porch, with white extruded aluminum exterior cladding for minimal maintenance.
  • Marvin created 12' tall windows for the second floor bedroom that were made with a single sheet of glass.
  • Interiors had to be solid wood that could be treated with a light pickle wash. “Many companies finger-joint the wood in their windows, so you have to paint them,” notes Belli. “Marvin's interior is clear wood, so you can really show off the grain.”
