1328 North State Parkway, a storied address, designed in 1938 by Chicago school architect Andrew Rebori and altered in the 1950s by Bertrand Goldberg, best known for Chicago’s Marina City residential and commercial towers, in all its Art Deco, Streamline Moderne lines, a mere 2 blocks from the shores of Lake Michigan, a beautiful exterior of a home with an interior in need of a loving attention to detail.
The exterior of this townhouse is dynamic, multifaceted, and possesses a priceless patina, all qualities which must be preserved and brought within the home itself.
While the current interiors present a rather austere interpretation of the spaces, all the bones and wonderful walls of light are readily available and central to the current design, the sole feature to be carried over into the new design and update of the home.
Atelier AM, an interior design firm which melds understated luxury and comfort with blue chip contemporary art, will serve as the inspiration for the renovations of this home via a previous project of theirs also located in the Windy City. Generous lines, deeply upholstered furniture, carved white walls, and magnificent interactions between light, art, and space define the interiors executed by Atelier AM.
Working in coordination with the understated, light swathed Atelier AM inspired designs, I would also incorporate elements from Art Deco movie sets to compliment the theatrical height and scale of certain features of the home. Cedric Gibbons, known for his Set Design work on many Garbo films, serves as an excellent reference point from which to venture forth from.
1328 North State Parkway is currently listed by Michael Rosenblum of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices. The home includes 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms within 4,500 square feet on a 2,382 square foot lot.
