I've been inside it once for a fund-raiser. From what I remember of it, it's pretty spare on the inside, at least in the more public areas on the first floor. Almost museum-like with lots of art - mix of modern and ancient. The pictures don't quite show it, but there is a large 2nd-floor outdoor space hat runs almost the entire length of the house, which is where the fund-raiser was held. I spent a majority of my time upstairs in the back of the house in the library, which is much more low-key and is full of books (obviously) and photos and mementos. It is a very beautiful place, especially during the summer where you can spend most of your time walking around the house outside.

The living room is the exact color scheme I've been going for in mine - so good to see it in action! Tons of inspiration here. Love it!

Love this design and I really hope it gets built. I'm glad that the newest revision is a bit more similar to the original plan, even though the spire is gone. I hope that it stays more or less this way and isn't shortened.

It'd be an amazing addition to the skyline. I was standing at Michigan and Wacker just the other day imagining how incredible it'd look just to the east of that intersection on the river.
