Urban Home on Chesnut

The Lou residence in Chicago’s Gold Coast, is comprised of two merged condominium units renovated to serve as one combined 2,500sf unit for a single-family owner. The idea is to take the smaller of the two dwelling units and convert it into one large master suite with a secondary bedroom alongside.

Attention to detail, texture, and ergonomics was accounted for in the master bath and bedroom reconfiguration. New design elements aim to provide a calming experience for the home owners through the use of diffused natural light, soft edged materials, and refined textures, all complemented by the use of low-energy input lighting and under-floor radiant heating systems.
