Before + After: Riverfront Loft

CFG Marketing

This historic riverfront loft redesign was a thoughtful collaboration between the homeowners, contractor (Joe Janetka), architect (Rehn Hessell of Yunker Associates) and interior designer (Judy Cornelius).


Judy Cornelius reflected on the design process:

"The clients were clear about the objectives and allowed us to start with a clean slate. The new owners wanted a comfortable and intimate living space with the ability to easily entertain large groups.

Almost everything was updated. Walls were moved, materials were updated, spaces were rethought, and creative storage solutions maximized livability. The floor plan was changed, and new stairs allow easy access to the private roof top deck.

With an expansive riverfront view second to none, the interior design palate reflects the important connection to the Mississippi River. 


The end result of this collaboration is a very sophisticated, peaceful environment for the happy new owners.

If you have a great before and after project for your home or condo, let us know - we would love to feature your stories!
