Existing 2 story 2 unit building. Program was to convert the existing property to single family, and add a new 3rd story. A large addition was added to the rear by filling in the existing side areaway.
The front facade was adapted by filling in one of the 2 entrance doors with a matching window and removing the stoop. The new 3rd story was designed as modified mansard with peaked dormer windows in an effort to make the new story appear original.
The first floor plan is open and loft like. the addition steps down 18 inches to give the Living Room taller ceilings. Part of th original side areaway is kept as an atrium space through to a roof skylight, with original exposed brick walls and open to the second floor.
The new third floor is partial depth and opens at the rear to a large roof terrace over the second floor.
