Cutler townhouse by Murdock Young

 WHEN Gavin Cutler bought an 1890s Brooklyn brownstone in 2004, he knew he wanted to gut the whole thing. He envisioned the top three floors as a big, open space for himself and his companion, Sundy Procter, and the garden floor as an apartment for his sister, Anne Cutler, and her 7-year-old daughter. Mr. Cutler hired Robert Young, a Manhattan architect, who had designed a loft for him in New York City and a weekend house in Montauk, to design the 4,000-square-foot space and to incorporate some of his very specific ideas.
