HIGHLIGHTER

Northfield, Illinois

 

This project is the transformation of a master suite in an existing home. The design direction was to reimagine the outdated 1,400sf space and incorporate lighting as a central element of the new architecture. Program requirements included a TV lounge, office, two walk-in closets, bedroom, and bathroom with dry sauna and free-standing tub.


The entrance to the master suite is through dramatic floor-to-ceiling steel and glass doors that open directly across from a smoked oak Poliform closet. Two light coves draw one’s eye to the ceiling, casting a serene glow and accentuating the height of the space.


The bathroom features a free-standing sculptural tub, highlighted by vertical light coves that disappear into a skylight above. A linear slab vanity, floating cabinet, and illuminated mirror form three volumes artfully suspended above one another on a grey tile wall, an installation that promotes a sense of lightness and calm.


Across from the vanity, the shower is the focal point of the room. The shower wall is a stone slab, a multicolored abstract situated between two floor-to-ceiling niches illuminated by concealed LED lighting. The remaining walls are clad in large format white porcelain, allowing the stone to stand alone as art.


In the bedroom, light becomes art. On the wall at the head of the bed recessed light boxes and illuminated floating night stands activate the double height space.
