AROUND THE BLOCK

This adaptive reuse project for an abandoned industrial complex in Northern Liberties occupies the west edge of an important gateway block to North Philly. By strategically removing sections of the warehouse building, converting the remaining spaces to loft apartments, and inserting new rowhouse blocks on the surrounding site, the project reactivates all surrounding public streets, including a small street seemingly destined to be a service alley to surface parking. Each block of rowhouses is tailored to fit the particular character of its adjacent street, creating a diverse set of streetscapes.
