South Shore Drive


For this renovation, we transformed the kitchen tucked into the interior of a vintage Hyde Park apartment into a into a bright, open and functional space for a serious chef. With the window view blocked by an adjacent brick wall, we used translucent glass over the windows to soften the challenging service court view while still letting in light. The project also featured a new built-in home office desk. The client’s functional needs and room layout guided the design for the desk, combining meticulous details and warm birch wood finish to create a unique and timeless piece of furniture.
