Moving a staircase and adding a skylight works wonders for lightening up a century-old row house.
This 100-year-old row house in the Georgetown area of Washinton D.C. looks fairly subdued on the outside
After: The new staircase was moved to the middle of the house and its transparent design allows for light to reach deep within the remodeled home.
The skylight above the staircase is the centerpiece of the new construction as it welcomes light into a home that had been dark for over a century.
The use of glass walls, an open floor plan, and steel cables assure that this home will always have an abundance of natural light pouring in from above.
There is no mistaking the majesty of the simple and sleek master suite at the front of the second level.
The master bath has a spa-like elegance and is artfully “hidden” behind “door number 3” among the closets.
