The building was a 1980s Yorkville townhome, designed originally by acclaimed architect Barton Meyers and built as two two-story duplex units. The scope of this project besides converting the building into a single-family residence is reprogramming and renovating the interior, redesigning the rear facade, and also adding on rear addition and elevator.

The interiors of this residence are designed around the new 4 story south-facing full height glass facade and two double-height atrium spaces. There is also a minimal glass railing on the outside of each of the high glass sliding doors to allow the family a seamless indoor-outdoor relationship with the mature spruce tree canopies.

A fourth-floor master retreat is offered by the light-filled open floor plan, including a bridge-like connection to two large walk-in closets. There is also a spa-like master bath with a freestanding soaker tub. With existing mature trees, the lower-level entertainment space stretches out to the secluded terraced garden.
