Society Hill Townhouse Expansion
It took a collaborative team effort to assist our client in combining two historic townhouses in the Society Hill neighborhood in Philadelphia to create one single house, full of gracious design details, complete with a beautiful garden and rear garage / guest suite.
VMA was responsible for the preservation work and the construction documentation and administration of this complex project. Working within a registered historic district, the heavily-altered street facades were meticulously reconstructed to recapture their original elegance while subtly indicating their combined nature inside. We partnered with Fury Design on the interior design and Victoria Steiger on the landscape, fountains, and hardscape to ensure a cohesive design of the garden facades, interiors, and garden that would have an artistic, contemporary feel.
