Sky Vault penthouse overlooks Lincoln Park. The owner obtained 4,500 sf of raw space atop a luxury high-rise and wanted an open-plan contemporary residence that maximizes expansive city and lake views.
Situated within a two-story mansard penthouse with stunning 270-degree views, this Lakeview duplex apartment establishes a series of material layers that unfold around a J-shaped plan and create spaces between them.
Set on top of an existing high rise apartment building, this is an extension like no other. The new build will add two additional floors onto the 12 storey building and create a modern stunning apartment.
The original state of this two-storey Parisian penthouse had its main rooms on the lower floor, with a double height that communicated with the terrace that was little used as it is on the upper level.
The owners of this dramatic penthouse searched long and hard for the perfect retirement home in the city and knew they had found it when they discovered a Baptist Church undergoing conversion in the South End.
For this project, we converted a small studio into a three-level penthouse, providing a very modern and efficient living space overlooking a historic district.
