This project was a townhouse renovation in Brooklyn, New York. One of the client's family members was claustrophobic - this became the driver for the design of the project. Creating an 'expansive space' became the key focus, which was achieved by de-cluttering, optical illusions, and the integration of the outdoors. The expansiveness and character of a seemingly minimalist space were heightened by creating implicit dimensions of space through light and shadow, hence the title of this project: "Maximalism" a term coined by Flavin Judd.
