CHALLENGE

With tremendous city and lake views, this open-floorplan studio/bachelor pad needed to be transformed into a modern pied a terre for a New York couple looking to create a home base for visits with their grandchildren in Chicago.

SOLUTION

First, we created a floorplan that gave each bedroom access to the amazing lake views. We also reworked the bathrooms and the kitchen, adding more functionality and storage and replacing a disproportionately large island and light soffit with more streamlined versions. While we elevated the design and finishes in the space, we also adhered to a simple and light color scheme to give the space an ethereal, modern feel.
