A new house on a historic block

A local builder purchased a sub-divided property in the Rittenhouse Square Historic District consisting of only a one-story garage and yard. As a spec house developer he came to CT&C knowing what worked in his market niche with a desire to match local buildings' scale and height without intruding on existing historical styles.

CT&C put together a builder's permit set which needed to be completed in a short time. Located in an old and well-known neighborhood he wanted the design to borrow language from some successful newer structures. On his list were tall ceilings, high windows a roof deck and 1st floor garage, with a basement under the garage.
