Game plan: Bringing more light to the living room was at the top of the agenda for the redesign. Architect Nick Noyes opened up the space to a small terrace on the south side with new French doors, allowing light to flow in from three sides of the room, and better integrated the kitchen, dining and living spaces. A redesigned open-riser central staircase capped by a large skylight further allows light to illuminate the heart of the home.
