Green Street

This new home in the center of Princeton Borough works within the urban fabric by utilizing traditional materials and breaking up the massing to work with the height and scale of the older neighboring homes. 

The narrow lot faces North and presents a special challenge in bringing natural light in. Creating a side courtyard and building a strong indoor-outdoor relationship allows the interior space to feel light, warm, open and at the same time private. House is designed for a young family and is organized around the Vertical Library – a central staircase lined with books.
