The Dining and Living Room
The couple built many furnishings, such as the storage chests, out of old leftover timber.
Bornstein’s living room features an intriguing collection of furniture. The sofa is made by Swedish manufacturer Ire. The 1970s wood burner was a secondhand store find, and the wood table, by Bruno Mattson, was found in a bin at a recycling station. He inherited the lounge chair from his parents.

The living spaces of house, built in 1972 or 1973, were originally divided into three—a kitchen, living and dining area, and an atrium (previous owners had covered the atrium with a roof). "The new owners wanted the interior space to flow as one, so we removed the glass doors and solid walls separating the enclosed atrium from the kitchen and living room," principal John Klopf says. "Some structural posts needed to remain to hold up the roof, but overall the space was opened up almost completely. The floor was leveled, and the plan freed up." The rainbow print is a 1960s Herman Miller trade poster, and the Vitamin Water print by a New York artist. A Sapien book tower from Design Within Reach sits next to the TV. The sofa is IKEA.

The homeowner grew up in Chicago's Hyde Park neighborhood in a home built in the 1920s with plaster walls. "I wanted to capture something closer to that than the decorative plasters," she says. "More than nostalgia, this custom plaster is more similar, more appropriate for a building from that era."
The new penthouses underneath the garden feature teak wood — which match the natural aspects upstairs. The furniture was purchased by the homeowner.
