Uneven floors were only the beginning of the home's problems. Loosle gutted the house, removed walls to open it up from end to end and replaced the plumbing, electrical and mechanical elements. This gave him an opportunity to maximize the 10- by 40-feet interior. “I’d done row houses before, but not as narrow as this," Loosle says. "This is the most narrow you can get.”

kateDesign Lessons From a 10-Foot-Wide Row House How to make a very narrow home open, bright and comfortable? Go vertical, focus on storage, work your materials and embrace modern design Most of us have that one tricky area in our home that seems impossible to design around. Long walls, narrow hallways, tight corners, no windows — these can be devilish little challenges. But architect Richard Loosle didn't have just one tricky room to fix. He had an entire house full of them: a two-story, 900-square-foot row house only 10 feet wide. The home, which dates back to the mid- to late 1700s and was likely used as housing for servants, is in Washington, D.C.'s historic Foggy Bottom neighborhood. Loosle's clients, a family of four from Libya who travel to the U.S. capital for business, were tired of staying in hotels every time they came to town. They bought the falling-apart row house to turn it into a part-time home. But the house had had only moderate renovations, the last of which occurred 50 years ago. Meanwhile, with such a narrow space, the house was dark and cramped. It was Loosle's task to open it up and make it comfortable. Houzz at a Glance Who stays here: A couple who most of the time lives in Africa with their 5-year-old twins Location: Foggy Bottom neighborhood of Washington, D.C. Size: 900 square feet; 2 bedrooms; 1½ bathrooms Cost: More than $500,000 @cavalierandco.com
