On the inside the luxurious residence brings together wood stone concrete and glass to shape a spectacular retreat where form meets function. The decor is kept to a bare minimum with iconic pieces such as the Eames Elliptical Table and the Womb Chair taking center stage.
A large opening above the kitchen allows light to filter through from the top floor even as the inimitable Tom Dixon Copper pendant lights add a bright metallic glint to the space. Long corridors double up as storage space with built-in shelves and hidden cabinets while an ergonomic home office is tucked away in the rear.
Bringing an unexpected and bright twist to the living room are the silver sofas and chairs that seem to fill the room with metallic radiance. The presence of yellow and orange throughout the house adds cheerfulness to the setting and gives it a casual yet beautiful ambiance.
While the focus at the 65BTP-House remains firmly outside the interior reflects the homeowner’s passion for nature and the effort of the architects to craft a residence that exudes this love. While the color scheme is kept largely neutral with white dominating the interior the addition of smart wooden surfaces brings warmth and textural contrast instantly. A stunning spiral staircase adds to the sculptural appeal of the decor even as a lovely living area kitchen entertainment hub and dining room complete the lower level of the residence.
Spread across three different levels and the custom-crafted townhouse exudes an airy and spacious vibe thanks to the square clean-lined architecture which visually enhances the compact rooms. A variety of textures in the form of exposed concrete walnut wood and stainless steel give the interior a unique appeal.
To minimize the impact of the building to the site — it’s a hybrid structure made entirely of wood with some steel and very little concrete — the architects also ensured that the house is completely off the grid. Which is why independent sources of heat and electricity were added.
Taking a cue from the renowned and distinct architectural heritage of Chicago the building is a stylish contemporary project in the River North neighborhood of the city. Encompassing six 2000+ square foot condominiums the unique façade of the building is clad in glass and steel to give it a modern industrial style.
