This gut-renovation of a 3-story brick townhouse dating from 1855 re-configures the formal townhouse typology to accommodate a modern-day young family of 4. The original front/back, public/service relationships are dissolved to create "open living" within a vertical configuration.
Walls are removed or thickened so that everything becomes double-sided. Programs are relocated and merged. Porosity across the floor plan and multiple openings through the roof allow any zone to become a potential focal point for activity.
