I received a call from Lenore a couple of years ago asking if she could book a shoot for a Chicago condo overlooking Navy Pier. I had been a fan of Lenore’s work for years and was excited to work with her.
Often, when someone is in need of an architect, they will also seek out a good interior designer to work with. There is such an advantage to using an architect and an interior designer in the early stages of your project to make sure that the finished product comes together perfectly, as the two fields can’t help but intertwine. But imagine if you will, working with an architect who is an interior designer? That’s Lenore. She is a master architect and a phenomenal interior designer. When I asked Lenore about this, she told me “To be a good architect, you need to understand interior design, to be a good interior designer, you need to know architecture. My mind just can’t separate the two.” I was floored.
We shot two projects nearly back-to-back. Looking at the photographs, you will notice attention to detail that is out of this world.
Lenore was recently featured in the fall edition of Licensed Architect magazine. An excellent read, and one that will have you reaching for the phone the next time you need an architect (and an interior designer). One call to Lenore covers both fields.
There is so much to talk about with this project, but we will let the photography tell the story. By the way, we could have easily added another 25 images or so. Stay tuned as we select some highlights from another project by Lenore Weiss Studios.
For those curious, all images are hand processed and were photographed using a SONY A850 and A700 cameras with Minolta and Carl Zeiss lenses.
