The new, glass enclosure includes a folding door system at the lower level, offset by Edward Durell Stone's original concrete block decorative walls. First published in Life Magazine in 1958, Durrel envisioned a new concept in multi-family housing.
The kitchen was reconfigured with deep, ash-wood cabinets and white glass counters. A walk-in pantry and utility closet are located behind the end wall.
