Clients who had lived in a house in Chicago's northern suburbs for over forty years were attracted to this recently completed in-town maisonette because its direct entry from the street gives it a house-like character. Working closely with interior designer Arthur Dunnam of Jed Johnson Associates, we created a highly detailed residence to complement our clients' sophisticated taste in furniture and art.

The foyer opens into a library, which features the same pine paneling that the clients enjoyed in their suburban house, and to a central gallery. The central gallery leads to the living room, situated in the building's circular corner bay with views to Lake Michigan; the dining room, with its inset panels of embroidered silk; and the stair. On the upper floor, the master suite includes a sitting room, which occupies the corner bay, and an elliptical bath with Roman mosaic floors. Also on the second level are our clients' shared study and two guest suites.
