Townhome Renovation

Located along side the Chicago River lies this 2300 SF townhouse with floor-to-ceiling windows offering a sweeping view of the river. This entire residence was stripped down to studs and transformed into a museum-like neutral palette to make way for the clients collectibles. Texture in the stone fireplace column climb to the 20 foot ceiling to lend interest from the upstairs office and master suite. Wallpaper in the master bedroom and study add warmed and sophistication. The kitchen was expanded to double the width and cabinetry taken to the ceiling for ample storage. Custom cabinetry panels were applied to the subzero refrigerator/freezer and Bosch dishwasher. The Wolf range sits below a pot filler and 1200 CFM industrial grade hood that called for a 10 inch HVAC tube hidden in the walls to escape through the new roof stack. The staircase and closets beneath were replaced with a floating staircase to open the foyer area and allow natural light from the living room to connect the spaces. A main hallway storage includes two-tier coat closet and a custom built shoe closet. The existing master bedroom was split into a separate office and master allowing for a more private work space adorning modern stained glass sliding doors and Baldwin pocket door hardware. Glass sliding doors in the study and master are soundproof and pair with half height glass mezzanine railings for an uninterrupted view of the river. New can lighting was installed throughout with dimmers for general coverage along with decorative pendants and chandeliers for mood and entertaining. All of the homes door levers, hinges and kitchen hardware was selected in aged bronze to contrast with the white doors and walls. Three bathrooms were fully updated with tile, floating vanities, fixtures and hardware. New baseboard and door casing finish the space with more clean modern lines.
