A gut renovation of a top floor owners' unit in a 3-story residential building was designed to have a loft-like feel. Walls and finished ceilings were removed to create open living spaces and a double height kitchen. The kitchen which was once a small room in the back, was relocated to the center of the apartment. A second bathroom was added. A new staircase leads to a mezzanine level above the living and dining areas and up to a private roof.
