This project I call The Stone house cause there was an old alley house at the back of the lot that everyone figured would just get torn down. I argued it should be saved and that it would be very interesting if given a new front volume. When my client worried about how ugly the house is, I said that the stone could get cleaned up and would be a different volume/ courtyard wall; and won’t be the front facade of the house any more. It would make a great story and that half historic half modern is all the rave. I’m fortunate he listened! And did a great job building out. One of the last pics is of what the city made us do to save the stone wall- structural prescription...
More before and afters to come!
