We provided complete architectural, engineering and interior design services for this complex addition and renovation project located in Philadelphia's Society Hill district. Our design concept required that 75% of the original two-story structure be demolished to make way for an expanded, new three-story home. The resulting floor plans feature a secluded urban courtyard with swimming pool and terrace. The house is designed to comfortably balance its function as a center for museum-related, social events while never losing its identity as a highly personalized residence for the President and his family. Careful attention was given to create beautifully detailed, "soft contemporary" interiors that graciously showcase our client's handsome furnishings and extensive art collection.
