To maximize daylight and optimize the views of the city beyond, this house renovation places public spaces on the upper level and bedroom, bath, dressing room, and office below. Service spaces are located on the eastern party wall where the adjacent building blocks access to light and views. To create a greater feeling of spaciousness and unity, these service spaces are in turn merged with adjacent living and dining areas.
