There are 2 options when you’re living in a small home but your family is growing. Option 1 is to move to a bigger house, option 2 is to hire an architect and transform your house into a space that’s the right size for your family. The owners of this row house in Brooklyn loved their neighbourhood and chose option 2. They hired Office of Architecture to transform their narrow house into a cozy family home. They added 2 levels to the house to create a new master suite on the top floor and a mud room in the basement. In this house you see all kinds of clever small space ideas and it really feels like a good size home where you can comfortably live with your family.
