residence at 33 huron

The interior details of this remodeled home reflect the intimate scale of the low-rise building located in Chicago’s dynamic River North neighborhood. Taken by the lovely southern exposure, the clients were open to a deep breadth of textures and color, as represented by the narrow plank wood floors and slatted screens. Bright plastered walls are tempered by oiled soapstone and Richlite panels in a rich black-blue.

A former third bedroom was converted to the couple’s home office. Separated by a short wall with steel-framed glass, a sliding door opens to create a focal point from the entry. Likewise the hallway doors are designed to recede into the walls, and the master suite door folds away to expose a mirrored dressing area. More steel-framed glass brings natural light into the master bathroom, where smooth white tile contrasts with the travertine floor and vanity.

The modern furnishings complement the architectural palette by introducing rounded lines and soft textures. Substantial upholstered pieces anchor the larger rooms, with slim accents to add lightness.
