To give his 1890's Brooklyn brownstone an open and lofty feel, film editor Gavin Cutler had the 4,000-square-foot home completely gutted to create a light-filled three-story space...

Mr. Cutler "wanted the house to be an open book, where each room was a separate chapter and led to the next," complete with lots of red and blue, channel glass and resin. He had a very specific vision for the space. For example, the wall in one room was covered in Anemone carpet to evoke a forest from Maurice Sendak's children's book Where the Wild Things Are.

The end result: glass landings enable Mr. Cutler and his companion to see the floors above and below, and the only doors are those on the three bathrooms and the guest room.
