Mohawk Street Residence is a four story family house that underwent a contemporary renovation by Studio Gild, located in the area of Lincoln Park, Chicago, Illinois. Comprised of 6,800 square feet, the interiors were completely re-designed, with a full gut renovation of the kitchen, bathrooms, all the fireplaces and the stairs. Taking five months to complete, the home had a time-pressing deadline due to the family of three re-locating from London to Chicago. The designers worked with Bigane Construction to demo the project and masterfully re-work the interior structure. Since the homeowners had moved from another country, they did not have many personal belongings to add to the design of the home, so several new purchases needed to be selected. The interior vibe was to create a crisp, clean aesthetic but also be comfortable with lots of textural layering. Warm tone of gray were infused throughout the interior. Everything needed to have its place to be clutter free and relaxing. Splashes of color can be found throughout, with colorful area rugs, textured wallpaper on the bathroom walls and expansive framed prints in all of the main living spaces.
A favorite spot in the home a solarium, fill with natural light. To keep the space bright and airy, the same color palette used in the rest of the home was carried over into the space. Indoor plants were added to purify the air and to create a calming environment. Some other standout features to this space includes radiant heated flooring, and an outdoor shower on one of the two terraces. The outdoor terraces capture the beautiful Chicago skyline and give the homeowners additional space for entertaining and enjoy some fresh air.

A wall was torn down that used to separate the kitchen from the dining room in order to create a more open space and accommodate the family to spend time together and for entertaining.
The wife’s home office features a nude print by photographer Billy Kidd, one of her favorite pieces in the home. The bold print mixes well with the graphic area rug, vintage glass desk and the bold hue of the pink chair.
The basement is a favorite spot for the family to hangout on the weekends. There is a mix of designer pieces with less expensive pieces since so many furnishings needed to be purchased at one time.
