A flat inner city double block. The existing house was a well-proportioned 1890’s brick building, with a strange “Mediterranean” 1980’s addition on the South side.

The 1980’s low ceiling addition had to go. It was replaced with a brick addition in sympathetic proportions, with a North facing courtyard separation from the old house. The West facing roofed outdoor dining space provides summer sun protection for the garden-view windows. The owners have enhanced the equilibrium with a most beautiful garden.
