Architects Tal Schori and Rustam-Marc Mehta, who founded their firm, GRT Architects, in 2015, have been friends since the third grade. They went on to attend the same university and architecture schools before setting out on their own careers: Schori working for Deborah Berke Partners, most recently, and Mehta for Cesar Pelli. But after seven years, they decided to go into business together, setting up shop above a gin distillery in Brooklyn. Here, their first residential project, the renovation of a very narrow townhouse in Fort Greene.
