Imagine waking up every morning to a panorama of Navy Pier. Drinking in the bright blue water of the Chicago Harbor along with your café au lait. Well, #HavenOnTheHarbor gets to do just that!
The condo originally had a tiny kitchen in the interior, missing out on the glorious views of the lake. The original goal with the renovation was to achieve a kitchen that functioned well and allowed people in the kitchen to be included with the living room. It did not include a view, a bedroom was occupying the space with the windows. However, once we opened up the walls, the homeowner loved how you could see the lake from every angle. So ultimately we decided to eliminate the bedroom and move the kitchen there instead.
This required a complete redesign the week of demolition as well as a new permit. A stressful time for sure, but such a great end result!
Two really special features in the kitchen are the range, which is the brand new induction range from Wolf, and the hood, custom made by a local fabricator.
The countertop is a very cool material from Levantina called cygnus leather that has an amazing texture.
