Please describe the process of designing the distinct kitchen elements at The Residences at The St. Regis Chicago.

When designing kitchens, the team looked at the big picture, as well as all the little details so that the homeowner can use their space for what it is meant: exploration, nourishment, play, relaxation, and self-expression.

Tell us a bit more about the four gem-inspired finishes at the residences. 

All of the cabinetry selections have been thoughtfully curated to represent four distinct finishes or ‘gems’. Residents can expect to find a playful combination of colors and textures uniquely designed for the project. One of the distinct features that is offered, is an open shelving element to lighten up the space and create a natural flow as the kitchen blends into the remainder of the home, truly making this a beautiful open concept that lends itself to the overall living space.

What are a few unique features within the design?

Snaidero Chicago, along with the design team, had planned for some unexpected features in the kitchen design. Like the hood of a car, the upper cabinetry of the kitchen once opened, remains suspended upwards on specialized hinging, reflecting some of Snaidero’s history in working and designing with world recognized automotive designers. Other unique design elements include hidden storage areas above the refrigerator and freezer, as well as the casual and functional dining counter, which cantilevers off the kitchen island.

What excites you most about this project?

I’m most excited to have Snaidero’s cabinetry featured in one of the most iconic residential buildings not only in Chicago, but across the world. This is also Snaidero’s second time working with internationally recognized architect, Jeanne Gang and their sixth multi-housing project working with world renowned developer, Magellan, an extremely symbiotic partnership and an honor to continue to feature Snaidero’s cabinetry across Chicago’s Lake Shore East community.
