Removal of 1950 addition and restoration to 19th century period

Located in the Rittenhouse-Fitler District of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, one of several important historic districts in the city. For this restoration, CT&C Architects worked closely with the Philadelphia Historical Commission to ensure great care was taken to obtain acceptable replacement brick, pointing mortar, patching material color and paint color appropriate for the period. The architects designed a single leaf mahogany door with arched transom flanked by period light fixtures of custom bronze casting and decorative bracket with globe.
The new sash on the building includes slightly enlarged styles, rails and muntins to accommodate the insulated double glazing necessary to make the building energy efficient.
