Situated on 2.5 acres of gardens, this contemporary home features 4,890 square feet of living space with seven bedrooms and six-and-a-half bathrooms.

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.

This stunning terrace house creates a seamless boundary between indoors and out, designed by Elaine Richardson Architect, located in Alexandria, a suburb of Sydney, Australia. Owned and designed by the architect as a family home with her husband are three children, the home was originally an old cottage that was beyond repair and had to be torn down. Sited on a narrow lot, the interior living space is comprised of 1,776 square feet (165 square meters), with four bedrooms, two bathrooms and a central courtyard for privacy. Since the lot was so narrow, light needed to be unfiltered into the spaces as much as possible to create the feeling of spaciousness. The living spaces were designed to be open and airy and clutter-free. The design concept was to create a place that was a tranquil oasis, a place to unwind from the chaotic city life. The exterior facade features natural bluestone, selected for its gorgeous finish and color. The wood elements are comprised of spotted gum timber. Glass bifold doors opens to the interior courtyard, which brings lots of light into the interiors and can be left open to bring fresh in. A small backyard space from the living area features an outdoor kitchen with a bbq and dining area, perfect for extra sitting space when entertaining family and friends.

A color palette of soothing hues was selected for the upstairs bedrooms, with linen curtains, lots of built-ins for functionality and wood flooring.
The architect designed separate bedrooms for each of her three boys, yet since they prefer sleeping in the same room, she turned this spare bedroom into a playroom. A loft bedroom is used as a playhouse but can also play host for when guests come to visit.
Louvered and bifold doors helps to bring lots of natural light into the upstairs bedrooms, but can also be closed off for privacy.

This magnificent hillside retreat has been designed as an 8,000 square foot family vacation home by Dick Clark + Associates, overlooking Lake Travis, in Austin, Texas. Built as a retreat for the whole family, which encompasses parents with three kids in their twenties, to get together and spend time together from their busy daily lives. After careful deliberation, the chosen style of the home was clean and modern, planned out as an H-shape with two separate wings for public and private zones. Clerestory windows allows light to penetrate the spaces while at the same time giving privacy from neighboring homes. The north side of structure is open to the lake to take in the magnificent views. A hallway with sliding glass panels can be opened to the outdoors, which intersects a central courtyard and leads to the bedrooms, which has pool and patio views. The home juts out towards the lake with a deck that includes a jacuzzi, cantilevering over the lake, which is 80 feet below. A tram allows access to the water from this point. Golden limestone saturates the exterior courtyards as well as the interior passageways. Another special feature with a modern appeal to the home was a copper clad elevated fitness room with a butterfly roof.
Working closely with Karen Hall Interior Design for the interior selections of the home, the color palette started with art selections for the wall, and then they drew off of that. Mostly abstract works were chosen, in keeping with the clean lines and contemporary nuances. Designer modern furnishings were mixed with more comfortable pieces, all of which needed to be durable and stand up staining. Therefore, finishes of leather, textured cotton and area rugs comprised of silk or wool were selected. The end result was an inviting and uncluttered atmosphere that doesn’t interrupt the unparalleled lake views.
What do you think of this family retreat? Do you find it too over the top or just perfect? Love lake houses, we here at 1 Kindesign have featured plenty in the past, here are a couple: Fabulous vacation retreat above Lake Austin: Compound Interest and Cove House displays comfort and beauty overlooking Lake Austin.
