The main floor keeps the brick walls intact, but everything else is thoroughly modern– white walls, blond hardwood floors, and glossy black cabinets frame the large open floor plan.
What makes the home stand out, besides its sensitivity to the original building, is its embrace of daylighting throughout. The main floor is book-ended with light scoops, which morph into angled windows on the upper floor. The upper story is unabashedly contemporary with angled walls and windows. A walk-out porch allows residents to enjoy the nearby downtown to the west, and a mezzanine keeps it connected to the main floor.
