Loft Style Brick House Conversion to Modern Kitchen
Designed & Installed by Guided Design.
What was once a night club in Lincoln Park, and vacant for many years is converted to a modern 3 story home. With existing brick in fairly decent condition, This home gives you that classic, authentic Chicago feeling. We wanted to design a kitchen that would contrast and highlight the existing structure, while providing a totally updated and modern feel.
Integrated Lighting & Extra Wide Free Floating Shelves
Keeping the main exterior brick wall visible, we fabricated and floated a 16 foot floating shelf, highlighted by an auxiliary lower left shelf and glass cabinet in the top right for glassware storage, complete with inner cabinet puck lights, and shelf routed with integrated strip lighting.
Fireplace Great Room
Fireplace designed by Urban Rooftops
This fireplace, wrapped with prefinished decorative panels, gives an updated look and feel to an otherwise, entirely brick wall dominated room.
With a 48″ wolf range and vent hood, multitasking for cooking projects gets just a little bit easier. Open shelving in the corner units of the kitchen provide great viewable storage of decorative glassware, cookware, or knick knacks.
Master Bathroom with Floating Appeal
This cherry hardwood cabinetry with a completely floating base blends traditional and contemporary styles.
Simple & Clean Powder Room Furniture Style
Cherry furniture style vanity with rounded bunfeet, and matching round mirror add to the appeal of this guest powder room.

Austin and his team have great expertise, and worked with me on multiple layout ideas. He helped us create a dramatic tall wall of double cabinets which we love! He also helped us accommodate 2 full size kitchen sinks to create our own custom chefs kitchen. He even suggested adding a spice cabinet, and now everyone that visits wants to get one. Highly recommend Austin and team.
Austin’s creativity and expertise were instrumental in making our quirky vintage apartment kitchen into a true gourmet kitchen experience. Austin cares about all of the little details and it shows in the finished product. We enjoyed bouncing around ideas and really valued the Austin’s expertise in kitchen design.
Austin and Josh were great to work with. My cabinets are not standard size and my kitchen trash can system was broken and needed to be replaced. Within a couple of days Austin had a custom solution made and installed. Their attention to detail and willingness to take on a smaller projects was greatly appreciated by my family.
