West Philadelphia Addition

Addition that heavily focused on re-purposed materials. The walls are salvaged from an art gallery in Center City Philadelphia and white-washed to brighten the space; the floor is resawn from salvaged heart pine beams, and the roof rafters are salvaged from a former church in Manayunk. A section of ceiling was left exposed in the kitchen to reveal the second floor framing, which was also white-washed. Custom locally fabricated cabinetry and soapstone countertops.
