Private Residence 4

Chicago, IL

Situated in Mies Van der Rohe’s landmark 880 Lake Shore Drive Tower in downtown Chicago, this luxury condominium is a study in contrasts: antique vs. modern, ornamental vs. industrial, sumptuous vs. ascetic and soft vs. hard. European antiques, custom furnishings, lush velvets and silks richly complement the strict white walls and gray rubber floors. Additionally, indigo draperies framing the passage from the entry to the main living space serve as a tactile, softening counterpoint to the hard surfaced envelope.
