Studio J. Jih and Figure's Hairpin House is Featured in AN Interior

Studio J. Jih and Figure collaborated to transform a four-story, 15-foot wide historic brick rowhouse in Boston's South End. The project takes the tight, unpredictable, and ultimately poetic switchback turns of a mountain road as inspiration for the overall renovation-and in particular, a new unraveling stair. ⁠Writes Jack Murphy of AN Interior, "While the space is finished in rich materials and details—lime plaster walls, a travertine island, and a winding white oak staircase—its realization also offers important notes about coauthorship and creativity."
