Historic versions of the original architect’s drawings were found in the Boston Public Library. This allowed original concepts to be reinterpreted for the new design. In the main living space, bamboo floors cascade down the stair, and provide a light contrast to rich mahogany. Mahogany details link each floor by connecting handrail to mantelpiece to cabinets.

The addition of translucent laminated glass walls encloses the room. The glass walls provide privacy, but keep the adjacent bedroom open.
