“My number one concern was to make it feel like a normal house [despite its restricted layout],” says Storey. “You’re stuck with a box, and if you want to get creative with that, it’s only going to make it a smaller box. Even the stairwell, which filters light into the core of the house, is a chunk of space I’ve taken away from it. It’s unusual how small the house looks on the outside compared to how big it feels inside.”  Photo 3 of 9 in Home and Studio Maximizes Very Narrow Site in Echo Park
