A new 6000 sq.ft. maisonette in Chicago's premier building

This duplex maisonette, designed and built from raw space, was meant to provide a family home as well as house a world class contemporary art collection. The building's traditional french architecture provided a starting point, along with the need to maximize wall space. This project was done in close collaboration with Linda Bedell Interiors.
