PENTHOUSE ADDITION

2006

WHAT: Conversion of a limestone row house into condos with new penthouse addition.

CHALLENGE: Maximizing FAR under zoning; balancing the new and the old.

STRATEGY: Two duplexes enlarge the building without adding visual weight; The more
intact Parlor Floor unit is restored with old details while the others are modern.
