STREETERVILLE PENTHOUSE EXPANSION

2,000 square feet

In 2009, we were ecstatic to take on a special residential project, a penthouse condominium in Streeterville’s Helmut Jahn tower owned by one of our former clients, a German-American couple with a strong appreciation for contemporary art and design. We were even more excited when we heard from them a few years later, asking us to incorporate fifty percent more living space into our original design.

Our expansion included the design of a new media room, a sun porch with sliding steel and glass doors and growing the combined kitchen and dining area. We also worked to create space and light for the couple’s art collection.

Following our previous design direction, we used a textural palette of globally-sourced materials, adding Spanish marble, Italian tile and Chinese silk. Two highlights from our earlier work are wearing well and continue to unify the space—cream-colored lacquer millwork and bold, curved walls, reflecting the shape of the building.
