Over the past two years—between art exhibitions, public murals and corporate projects—lesbian artist Sam Kirk has been designing a three-story, loft-styled, penthouse in Chicago's luxurious River North neighborhood.

The walls feature unique color patterns, and a custom-designed elevator opens to the roof deck, allowing natural light to pour into the sixth-floor foyer.

In recent years, Kirk has been commissioned by clients such as, Guinness and Toyota to build out large-scale installations into artistic experiences. A press release read, "This loft is a permanent installation of self-expression that combines the talents of Sam Kirk and the personality of [homeowner] Misty Campbell into a dynamic living space."

In addition, the fifth floor of this completely ADA-accessible home is composed of a home office, lounge space for meetings and indoor gatherings; the sixth floor is exclusively for family time and daily activities; and the seventh floor includes a master suite with a private roof deck.
