Location: University City, Philadelphia
Building Type: Victorian Twin
Our clients were passionate about the transitional redesign of their historic home. They wanted to honor the Victorian bones of their new home, but desired updated modern amenities and finishes: an open kitchen concept with glass curtain wall; a luxurious master bathroom suite with two-person shower and integrated soaking tub; and a functional 3rd floor guest bathroom and laundry room. The stunning kitchen transformation included custom LED recessed lighting; custom maple butcher block countertops; and a sixteen-by-eight-foot breakfast nook addition with an amazing view of the rear yard. The master bathroom featured a custom wet-bed shower pan with tea-for-two soaking tub; a custom-height vanity; and a walk-in closet. We replaced the windows throughout the home with new high-efficiency stain-grade windows. We preserved the butler’s stair and 1st and 2nd floor Victorian crown molding and restored two mantles, including new gas inserts new quartz hearth pieces.
