This 3rd story addition and interior renovation to an existing 2-story in the Brewerytown neighborhood of Philadelphia will be a new single-family home come 2017! The design consists of an open floor plan layout, 3 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms. Fitting a simple, modern box on top of the existing brick structure was the primary design behind the face. We introduced fiber cement paneling and siding into the project as a cost-effective and clean material palette with the existing brick structure. The roof deck will give the new homeowners an incredible perspctive into Center City Philadelphia. Thinking about micro and macro details are important in a project such as this.
