The gut renovation of the townhouse afforded the freedom to maximize natural light and create direct visual and physical connections to green spaces. The excavated rear yard, wrapped with a living wall, creates an outdoor room connecting the two public floors.

The bottom half of the rear façade was removed and replaced with full-height glass doors. The walk-on skylight at the Master Bathroom provides a visual connection to the new Roof Garden above. Slatted wood rails and rain screens tie the garden spaces together and provide a structure for growing plants.
