Perkins & Will's design contemporary condominium tower for downtown Chicago 

Contemporaine is a 28-unit condominium, 96,000 square feet building located in Chicago, consisting of an eleven-story residential tower and four-story retail and parking base. The mass of the tower is broken down by a series of slots scored down the façade with small cantilevered balconies. To bring the base to pedestrian level, the structure of the parking garage is exposed with floor-to-ceiling glass between the floor slabs, similar to the tower above. The top of the tower is sculpted to offer large terraces for the penthouse units and the condos offer open floor plans with large expanses of floor-to-ceiling glass allowing natural light and dynamic views of the downtown skyline. Four penthouses feature living spaces with 20 to 32-foot glass walls to further capture the daylight and the views.
