Natural light "is an obsession of our practice," Brendan says. "Probably any architect in NYC shares this obsession. This house happens to have a south-facing garden. Because of that, we decided to open as much of the wall as was physically and financially possible to the garden and south light. Bringing light deep into a dark row house and creating a strong physical and visual connections between the inside spaces and garden spaces is always very important to us."
The sea-anemone inspired light fixture from Robert Abbey adds a touch of whimsy.
