Best Use of Space You've Ever Seen: My favorite use of space is what we like to call "the girl's lounge" in a Lincoln Park home that KMD designed. After the family's eldest daughter went to college, twin adolescent sisters were left to take over her room.

The girls decided to continue sharing a bedroom which left the big sister's room open for something new. We created a fresh, yet comfortable, media lounge for them to retreat to after a hard day in middle school.

Now whenever I walk into the room, the thirteen year old girls and their friends are undoubtedly watching MTV, painting each other's nails and are surrounded by candy wrappers.
