The project reconfigured the space by removing the existing basement stair from the corner of the kitchen and replacing it with a new skylit central stair linking all three levels of the home.

This opened up the perimeter of the house to the yard and created a light-filled kitchen that is both elegant and efficient.

A new deck extends the space of the kitchen through glass sliding doors to overlook a backyard patio and garden.
