The interior renovation of a 6000 square foot, two story apartment.
This project is located in a 1920s pre-war high-rise along Chicago’s Lake Shore Drive. The residence was a compartmentalized collection of boxy rooms. The challenge was to transform it into an open, architecturally dramatic series of visually connected and graceful spaces.
The new layout was designed to increase flow and to maximize daylight. By using a consistent palette of materials throughout the home, one space flows into the next. Visual cues in the ceiling, millwork and floor signal and connect separate areas within a larger cohesive space.
Features include a gallery, wine room, monumental steel stair, lighting design, home integration technologies, and his and her master suite. The design is a blend of modern restraint and modern day luxury.
