        One of Killcoyne’s key design goals: not having a bed in the living room. Though you can’t see it in this image, the bed is tucked just behind the louvered partition behind the desk.

        “It was a total wreck,” says the architect, recalling the stained shag carpeting and dangling cabinet doors that greeted him the first time he visited. Working with B&B Construction, Killcoyne gutted the space, replaced the windows and started over from scratch, dividing the unit into discrete zones while maintaining its open feel. “I really wanted to create rooms that flowed together, but at the same time, you had separate areas that defined different living spaces,” says the architect. He knows something about small spaces, having raised two children in a 650-square-foot apartment. It’s not the space that proves limiting, Killcoyne concludes. It’s the stuff you’re trying to cram into it. “If you can control the amount of things you own,” he says, “you can live in small spaces very nicely.”Killcoyne’s client wanted a home that looked “clean, simple, elegant and timeless,” the architect says. Instead of creating one open room to make the space feel bigger, Killcoyne established separate interconnected zones for living, sleeping and cooking. “The place feels bigger,” the architect says, “because you get three major rooms out of it. You don’t feel like you’re trapped in one box.”
