Project Designer & Project Architect
As the lead designer of the townhouses along Wallace Street I also assumed the role of the project designer and architect of the existing 19th century factory that was converted to condominiums.

PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA // 44,124 GSF WAREHOUSE CONVERSION // 25 NEW TOWNHOUSES
Only a few blocks from the True North project, this adaptive reuse project for an abandoned industrial complex in Northern Liberties occupies the west edge of an important gateway block to North Philly. By strategically removing sections of the warehouse building, converting the remaining spaces to loft apartments, and inserting new rowhouse blocks on the surrounding site, the project reactivates all surrounding public streets. Each block of rowhouses is tailored to fit the particular character of its adjacent street, creating a diverse set of streetscapes.
In the warehouse, unique considerations were made to acheive high sound ratings while maintaining exposed original construction.
