Located in Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s landmark 860 Lake Shore Drive building, the design objective was to transform a three-bedroom apartment into a spacious one-bedroom while maintaining the Miesian detail and influence of the building envelope throughout the space. Through removing interior bedroom partitions, the apartment received increased natural light and panoramic views of the city. Translucent glass panels divide the bedroom to further add dimension and natural light, and custom millwork and cabinets create an atmosphere of spaciousness while also providing precise function. The custom dining table is constructed of travertine marble, homage to the stone of the building’s lobby and plaza.
