Location: University City, Philadelphia
Building type: Victorian Twin
We rebuilt the existing rear addition of this turn-of-the-century Victorian twin and replaced a 36-inch doorway with a new 14-foot opening between the kitchen and living room. To do so, we solidified the existing stone foundation; removed the entire two-story rear masonry wall; and replaced all the structural members between the 1st and 2nd floors. The new open kitchen plan included a large island and space for a dining table. On the 2nd floor, we created a new master bedroom suite with a comfortable his-and-her bathroom, walk-in closet, and laundry room.
