Arkadia West Loop Renovation

Chicago, IL

Originally built in 2015 and located in the heart of Greektown, this luxury high rise had great bones, but its interiors were lacking the artistic energy and residential warmth its West Loop residents desired. The interior refresh of Arkadia was achieved by melding spunky colors, playful patterns, and unexpected use of scale.

Playing off of the lobby’s dramatic scale, vibrant color and bold graphics are contrasted with warm wood tones to create a sophisticated welcome to the property. Greenery is layered throughout the spaces by way of indoor planters and a moss feature wall that dances its way up the lobby’s main staircase. Patterns of varying scale are paired throughout to create quirky and visually stimulating spaces for residents to relax, work, and mingle.

Throughout the fifth-floor amenity spaces, a warm wood-tone floor is contrasted with graphic elements and accents of color. In the party room, a floral rug and rich walnut wood tones are juxtaposed with graphic black and white concrete tiles on both the floor and wall that will endure a beautiful patina over time. This same black and white floor tile is a repeating element in the game room where residents can enjoy a variety of games including billiards, board games, and a giant wall Scrabble game. A colorful, abstract watercolor graphic draws residents to the fireplace lounge and out to the newly outfitted roof deck. Just in time for Chicago’s summer of 2019, residents can enjoy lounging poolside, grilling out with friends, or a game of cornhole at this fully remodeled outdoor space.
