Location: West Loop —Chicago, Illinois
My husband, Dave, and I have lived in this space for a little over a year. Prior to moving in we did an entire gut rehab of the space. The condo was originally a factory that was later converted to residential condos (imagine maple cabinets and dark granite counter tops).
We wanted our renovation to showcase the amazing bones of the space so we chose a lot of contrasting materials - cool gray kitchen, white walls, bleached floors to contrast with the warm timber and brick.
We loved the process of collaborating together on the design and have been discussing doing more rehab ever since. We recently took the leap and founded Studio Code, a small architect-led development firm.
