Two townhouses in Queen Village
Architects: Ivano D’Angella & Pablo Meninato (joint venture)
Location: 626 S. Front St. Philadelphia
Program: renovation of existing historic structure into two townhouses
7.000 Sq Ft
Status: on hold
Located at the corner of Front and Bainbridge Streets, the property is composed of two distinctive structures. On the east side is the oldest one, build in the 18th century. The proposal is to create two single family houses. The east side residence will be the remodeling of the historical monolithic construction, while on the west side it will be mostly a new construction.
The main idea is to preserve in its uttermost integrity a historical structure, while proposing a new structure with a familiar, compatible, though contemporary vocabulary.
