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!

On July 21st, 11 Harrington Interior Design students and two faculty members took a very unique field trip: one that took them to the open construction space atop the Ritz Carlton Residences currently under construction!

During the exciting trip, students learned the in’s and out’s of real world construction projects from start to finish, including background on how restoration is handled during the construction of the historic building located on the Magnificent Mile of Chicago. From an outside construction elevator, to safety gear, to breathtaking 360* views of the lake and downtown Chicago, the field trip was a once in the lifetime opportunity for the interior design program students to see the up and coming space.

INTERIOR DESIGN: The Unexpected, the Surprise

“The design trend now is in the unexpected, the surprise.

In a dining room, frames and furniture that melt into the background of the wall…

In a spa, fixtures and ambiance that work together to touch emotions and stimulate the mind and body perceptions.

In a room, LED lights that change color and allow you to create different moods in the same setting…”
