North Center, Chicago

Bucking the trend of converting multi-unit buildings into single-family residences, this typical Chicago “two flat” will retain both units while creating a spacious duplex for the owner & their family. The upper two floors will become an airy, modern living space that spills out to a sculptural rear deck. An open kitchen will be the highlight of the new ground floor as it links the linear living spaces, mirroring the owner’s daily routine. The unfinished basement will be converted into a light-filled, two-bedroom apartment with it’s own dedicated entry.
