As one of Harrington College of Design’s Interior Design instructors, Constantine Vasilios’ work has received recognition from both near and far. This past year, Constantine’s Ronald McDonald House design (pictured above) was recently exhibited at the University of Texas at Austin.

The design for the Ronald McDonald House in Oak Lawn, IL included 16 suites, several living areas, kitchen areas, dining areas, and other spaces for a total area of approximately 24,000 square feet. Inside, collective and individual spaces were created to support families’ physical and emotional needs during their children’s hospital treatments. Features included niches for relaxation, a computer center, a teen space, experiential play spaces, a dream staircase, communal dining room, administrative areas, and a contemplative landscape which seemed to connect the building to the hospital across the street. You can read more about the project in the two-day feature shared in this blog last year: be sure to see Part I and Part II.

The Alumni Exhibition was created at the University of Texas at Austin to celebrate their School of Architecture’s centennial anniversary. As an Alum, Constantine’s work was chosen as part of the diverse and select representation of leading work produced by graduates of the school.

Constantine D. Vasilios & Associates, Ltd. was also recently recognized with an ASID Design Excellence Award for their work on a S. Michigan Avenue home which you can see above. The scope of the project included a complete interior and exterior rehabilitation, including an addition to the house. The design honored historic elements, innovation of an interior layout, well thought out spaces, and quality finishes.
