Last month we showed you a fantastic 1900 sq foot space in Lawrenceville. Today we’re looking at an apartment in Upper Lawrenceville that’s about one fifth of that size, and equally beautiful. This is the first of two quality renovations we’re going to show you that were completed last year by Kate Dougherty. Check back soon to see Kate’s apartment upstairs.
Architect Annie Ranttila moved to Pittsburgh in August from Chicago to begin grad school at CMU. She’s here to get an MS in Sustainable Design. She went from a large 3 bedroom apartment and an income to support it, to this studio apartment. She found it when she reconnected with Kate, who she went to college with. What she’s done with a space the size of an average hotel room is pretty darn amazing. Kate obviously gave her a great space to work with.
