John V McPhersonArchitect
John V. McPherson was an architect based out of Homewood, IL, who was also on the Homewood Planning Commission. He designed modern homes for his clients with features such as pre-milled fir ceiling planks, pre-fabricated windows, cantilevered spaces, brick and stone walls and more. In the mid-’50s, when McPherson was designing homes for his clients, this concept of “modular construction” and “shop fabrication” of materials that were then shipped to the building site were considered novel.
McPherson continued to design homes well into the late ’60s, focusing mainly on the Homewood / Flossmoor / Olympia Fields area, but also venturing up to Highland Park and other suburbs.
