The narrowness of the house required the design to make effective yet frugal uses of space. Precise positioning of walls, doors, and windows were crucial as each floor was planned to serve a purpose. The first floor is a continuous public space with a living room, dining area, kitchen, and library opening to gardens in the front and back.

The building has exquisite original architectural details, and we kept the delicacy of that detailing at the front of our minds as we designed—allowing it to serve as our inspiration for the slender proportions that prevail in the kitchen and the dressing room millwork. We added arched elements on the existing windows. Additionally, an extra arched framing device that springs from corbels acts as a divider between the kitchen and dining room," explains Kevin Greenberg of Space Exploration.
