Modern home with Office, Storage, Light Hardwood Floor, Desk, Lamps, Chair, Library Room Type, and Study Room Type. We converted an old dusty attic into a spacious writer's garret. The new space involves a dormer addition that had to meet the neighborhood's strict Historic District design guidelines and blend well with the existing home—a noteworthy and unique 1914 building.

Modern home with Office, Study Room Type, Lamps, Library Room Type, and Chair. We designed a wall-to-wall desk from a beautiful piece of live-edge walnut, which provides ample room for writing, as well as for laying out research materials. Brass sconces with gold-tipped bulbs add a warm glow reminiscent of library reading rooms. Photo 2 of Writer's GarretView Photos
