Peoria Street Condo is the complete redesign of a 1500 SF loft in Chicago's West Loop. The design explores the extrusion and layering of multiple boxes into the main living space with carving and subtraction in the private spaces in order to both reveal the substantial original 1915 timber structure and challenge the perception of solid and void relative to that structure. The two bedroom two bathroom space features all new lighting throughout, refinished and salvaged wood floors in the main living space, and pocket doors with Italian door hardware. The kitchen is highlighted by a 10 foot carrara marble island with breakfast bar opposite quartz countertops complete with an undermount zero radius stainless steel sink. White gloss cabinetry with Finnish drawer pulls, a white penny round backsplash, and stainless appliances finish the space. The bedrooms and main living space are articulated with playful pendant lights from Moooi, Patrick Townsend, and Sofie Refer and recessed lighting that mimics the door hardware. Both bathrooms feature wall mounted low flow toilets while the guest bathroom is finished with slate floors and a subway tile shower carved from the box form that extrudes into the kitchen. The master bathroom is finished with travertine on the floors and shower walls, white stained oak cabinetry and a cast iron tub.
