Renovation as Preservation

Philadelphia is filled with architectural gems. Our rich history (and fire-proof construction) has left us with a rich inheritance of historical styles, building construction methods, and carefully crafted urban space. As architects we see ourselves as operating within this tapestry. We often mend the urban fabric by renovating and revitalizing existing structures before they outlive their building systems or uses. We contribute to the fabric when we are called on to replace them. Some projects lead us to confront our urban history head-on. Such was the case with a recent gut renovation near Rittenhouse Square. The property, originally built in 1915, was not necessarily architecturally sign
