Extra space above the closet.

A second level claims space from the attic to double the storage capacity of this narrow closet. The extra space holds out-ofseason clothes out of the way yet where they're easy to retrieve.

What appears to be an overbead light baffle in the lower closet is really 39-inchwide fire-escape grating that serves as a walking deck for the upper level. The grating permits air circulation in the 14foot-high space and allows light from ceiling fixtures and a small attic window to reach the space below. It rests on 2-by-4 ledgers running the length of the room.

Zephyr Architectural Partnership of Honolulu designed the closet for Marjorie and Robert Wilson.
