It helps to have a few architect buddies in your list of friends, especially if you're planning on turning a run-down, 19th century school house into your dream home. Residents Richard Renaldi and Seth Boyd, both photographers from New York, called in a few favors to do just that.
Located in Milford, Pennsylvania, this modern space houses the bones of Milford's very first school house, built in 1850. With the help of architects Andrew Magnes of amProjects and Koray Duman of sayigh+duman, it became a 3600 square foot residence. The open floorplan is bisected with a massive wall that helps define the space as well as hide various storage elements, attic stairs, and even a guest room desk.
