Required as a secondary means of egress, this compact stair also provides a shortcut from the master suite to the first-floor library.
A light-filled new stairway connects the first-floor living space with bedrooms at the second and lower levels.
Relocating the lower-level garage to its own separate building freed space for a family room that opens onto the backyard pool deck.
Moving casual living spaces to the rear freed the house's original first-floor rooms for more formal uses.
New, taller doorways maximize the penetration of natural light. An eclectic mix of lighting fixtures adds a contemporary touch.
