Philly Lean

In Construction. Expected Completion 2019.

ABOUT | These three buildings insert themselves into West Philadelphia's land of porch-fronted row homes. Unlike the flat fronts of Kensington blocks, these facades are rich with shadow lines, material variation, railings, and cornices. These projects respond in-kind by mirroring the depth and intricacies of their neighbors. Red brick creates a resilient base at the street while standing seam metal sits lightly on top and leans back; an interpretation of a dormer window scaled up.
