When Reuben Warshawsky and David Rosen, co-founders of CLG Realty and co-managers of Mallinckrodt Renaissance LLC approached Peter Klick, Program Coordinator of Interior Design at the Harrington College of Design with their dynamic rehabbed church turned condo, an exciting competition for Harrington interior design program students and alumni was born!

The Challenge: Design the interior of a gorgeous condo in a building that was previously a church at the Mallinckrodt in the Park in Wilmette, IL. Provide floor plans of the lower floor and the Mezzanine including at least two renderings (computer, hand rendering or mixed technique): one view from the large space and one view from the master bedroom area. Be creative.

The competition garnered some great press as the Harrington alumni and student teams quickly went to work to design the space. The Mallinckrodt / Harrington Residential Design Competition judging event was held last Wednesday September 21st within the very unit in Wilmette, IL that the students had just designed.

We’re excited to share the top three winning designs produced by our exceptional interior design college team winners!

Near the end of last year, students and alumni from the Harrington College of Design teamed up with the Chicago Dramatists for a unique competition: an opportunity to redesign the lobby and exterior space for a historic downtown theater!

On December 1st, a panel of professionals made up by members of Chicago Dramatists, Harrington College of Design and the West Town Chamber of Commerce selected the winning design based on its adherence to the Chicago Dramatists’ brand identity, use of finishes, fixtures and displays, and other considerations. The design competition was made possible through a grant from Chicago Community Trust, as a part of the Arts Engagement Exchange.

The winners of the competition were:

First place: Sarah Kuchar and Matt McGrane

Second place: Kristin Over, Arthur Garcia-Clemente, and Sheryl Schulze


Third place: Jennifer Lea and Momi Jahn


As winners of the competition, Harrington student Matthew McGrane and Harrington alumna Sarah Kuchar were honored with a cash prize of $750 and a plaque in the theatre lobby, along with the construction of their winning design.

Currently, the estimated date of completion for the interior construction will be ready for the Chicago Dramatists’ premiere production, BORDELLO, on February 4, 2011. The second phase of exterior renovation should wrap up in time for the opening of the final 2010-2011 production of HICKORYDICKORY in May. The construction budget for both interior and exterior improvements is approximately $13,500. 

Read tomorrow to see the 1st Place design work! Also, be sure to keep following the blog to see the renovation in-progress and final construction.
