Adding a dormer provided 100 square feet for the home office, located near the top of the stairs; it was left open to the stairwell and library wall for a feeling of spaciousness. The mechanicals closet and a door separate these areas from the master suite.
Shown here (clockwise, top left:) 1. The office occupies a dormer bumpout. The desk stretches wall to wall and is framed by windows; 2. The bath, in the shortest arm of the old T, gained room by recessing the toilet into the mechanicals closet. A skylight brightens up the space; 3. The master bedroom fits into the largest open space. The room narrows at the entrance for a closet and built-in bureau with a skylight overhead; 4. Low bookcases line the library wall opposite the office and behind the stairwell balustrade.
