FIRM: STANEV POTTS ARCHITECTS
EXPECTED COMPLETION: DECEMBER 2019
ROLE: DESIGNER + PROJECT MANAGER

The Five story home with roof deck is located at the rear of an existing historic brown stone on Spruce Street in the Rittenhouse neighborhood. The site once housed a non-historic garage on a steep incline. After zoning approval was achieved, a case  was presented before the Philadelphia Historic Commission’s Board for final approval of both its massing and design.

The living room on the first floor opens onto a patio, fronting the seldom-used, narrow Manning Street. The house’s kitchen and dining room are located on the lowest level (below grade) off the sunken courtyard between the existing apartment building and the new building. The second through fourth floors each have a full bath and bedroom with windows on both the front and rear wall that provides ample light for a spacious feeling in the minimal footprint.
