Judges said: It’s one thing to save a grand central staircase and another to turn it into a library! This combination of preservation and inventiveness is seen throughout the house and out into the yard. The fearless use of strong color juxtaposes well with existing and uncovered historic materials of the townhouse. This is a good example of modern sensibility in the service of preservation, creating a wonderfully alive home environment.
