New York Magazine: This Airy Townhouse is Actually Only 11 Feet Wide

Architects Tal Schori and Rustam-Marc Mehta, who founded their firm, GRT Architects, in 2015, have been friends since the third grade… Here, their first residential project, the renovation of a very narrow townhouse in Fort Greene.
The 11-Foot Challenge: GRT changed the rectangular vestibule ceiling into an arched space to echo the entry doors. They worked with Calico Wallpaper to customize an ombre design that morphs from orange to lavender. “This was not only our first residential project, Schori says, “but also our first renovation.”
