Lake Shore Drive House

2007 / Chicago, IL

The Lake Shore Drive Residence is an extensive interior preservation and remodeling project in a 1920's vintage apartment that over-looks Belmont Harbor in Chicago's Lakeview neighborhood. This project restored the historic detailing and spatial qualities of the original residence, while adding contemporary amenities. Highlights include a new kitchen, reworked master suite with master bath and closet, updated secondary bathrooms, addition of an air conditioning system as well as general restoration to the original architectural characteristics, including refurbishing the existing wood floor and plaster detailing throughout. The goal of the project restores the overall layout of the vintage home to maximize usability for a modern lifestyle while preserving and enhancing the original characteristics of the home.
