This project consists of a complete renovation of the interior of a traditional townhouse in Chicago's Lincoln Park neighborhood.
The interior of the house is organized around a large, elliptically curving stair made of craftsman wrought-iron and Brazilian cherry treads. At the center of this stair, at the main house level, an inlaid stone mosaic pattern based on a traditional northern Italian motif dominates the entry hall.
Carefully researched traditional trim and detailing was installed throughout the house including a linked series of stone mosaic floor patterns and designs.
Imported carved stone fireplace surrounds were incorporated with new, wood-burning Rumford style fireplaces in the Living Room, Family Room and Sitting Room.
