A Book by it's Cover
With four bedrooms and baths on three floors, this townhouse was a series of enclosed rooms, each opening off of the other, with the central dining room located between the kitchen and living room.  BZ Architect's task: visually expand the townhouse interior by maximizing the available space, while staying within the townhouse's envelope.

Replacing bearing walls with columns and beams, BZ Architects blended the spaces together, allowing the new free-standing maple cabinetry to define the home's various areas. What once had been discreet rooms became a group of warm, inviting spaces where the Owner and guest alike can converse freely across a counter or between spaces.

All three bedrooms on the upper level retain their privacy, with the master bedroom and bath suite having been outfitted with a separate soaking tub and a two-person, walk-in shower.  Provided with a pair of skylights, a large maple door slides aside to allow daylight to penetrate throughout the suite.  Full-height maple doors flank the master bedroom and open completely for storage access and offer added acoustical privacy to the townhouse.
