SCHILLER STUDIO RESIDENCES

MULTI-FAMILY RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT/RENOVATION

This 3000 SF residential building in Chicago’s Old Town neighborhood was renovated using new and recycled materials. The architects preserved a Bohemian 1930s collaborative by the artisans Edgar Miller and Sol Kogan while upgrading kitchens, electrical and plumbing.

The work is characterized by a tapestry of mosaic and wood carved surfaces, bold and secretive spaces. There are two horizontal units at grade level and 2 duplexes on the second and third levels. A 500 SF roof addition in the same Bohemian style provided decks and master suites for the two duplex units.
