Located in the Gold Coast neighborhood of Chicago, IL. this coach house was selectively renovated to include a new kitchen and living space. The new design had to be cozy, durable and give the feel of an old lodge so we used reclaimed wood for cladding the existing steel columns and beams and sandblasted the existing Chicago style brick. The lodge style interior incorporated toffee stained maple wood for the kitchen cabinets and media cabinet. Brushed soap stone counter tops were used for their antique patina along with vintage carbon filament light bulbs over the kitchen peninsula. The existing HVAC systems were hidden from view via full height wood stile and rail doors on hidden touch latch control should service be required. Vintage artwork completes the experience for the cozy lodge experience desired by the owner.
