North Center 2-flat

Location: Chicago, IL
Status: Complete

This single-family-home-in-concept sits atop a rental apartment. As the fourth owners of the dated 1908 duplex, the 1st floor rental apartment was rehabbed but maintained while the 2nd floor was completely gutted and converted to living space. The unfinished 3rd floor attic was dormered to create a primary suite, two additional bedrooms, a second full bath and laundry room. This recapturing of the unused attic gave the owners a coveted 3 bed/2 bath residence. Later phases included updates to the rental level as well as a new front entry and integrated planters.
