Logan Square's Mica Building - 3d Roomstyler

I know I normally post fashion design but.... I like to think of this blog as a good example of random creative things I've done/played with.

That being said, I just finished another apartment layout via 3D Roomstyler! Clearly, this program is somewhat of an addiction for me, but I really don't have a problem with that.

Since the last one I did was New York, I definitely needed one to be right here in my own city.

I chose the Mica Building mostly because, I didn't know how I felt about these gigantic buildings suddenly popping up off the California blue line stop. I pass these buildings every day on my way to and from work and I couldn't fathom living in either of them. If you ask any long-time Chicagoan about the crazy housing boom that's going on in Logan Square, we all don't know how we feel about it.

So I wondered.... could someone fall in love with a building just doing a 3D Roomstyler layout on them?

Again, I am not a professional by any means, but this is what I came up with by looking at the South 04 one bedroom layout.

 The skyline isn't EXACTLY what you would see from Milwaukee Avenue, but you get the idea. 

Here is my layout (below) versus the actual building layout. 



And then here is the view looking at the kitchen:


 Another angle on the livingroom/kitchen:


Here is what is looks like upon entering the apartment from your front door:


And here is your hallway leading to both bathroom and bedroom. From the hallway, I started throwing in lots of Chicago-y things, of course like the art print on the wall.



Below is the very small bathroom which was also harder to get a photo of.


 And saving the best for last.... the bedroom with an awesome Chicago art print on the wall.

It looks like the one-bedroom unit like I Roomstyled goes for $1845/month. My layout came out to be roughly 85 sq ft more than this unit which was 796 sq ft.

More information on these apartments and more of their layouts on here.

If you want more 3D Roomstyler shots, inspiration, or to make your own 3D interior, go here.

Happy planning!
