Old Town Home Renovation

Urban Man-ifesto

This urban bachelor and die-hard sports fan wanted his three-story home in Chicago to feel masculine and laid-back, luxe but not over the top, and super comfortable for his family and friends. We gave him fewer curves and more angles and edges, custom furnishings and finishes, references to his favorite teams and, in his words, “a kickass deck.” Among his must-haves: two closets in the master bedroom – one for suits, the other for team jerseys – a beer fridge within reach of his bed and a game room with pool table.
