Sited on a vacant corner in the Northern Liberties section of Philadelphia, this house for a growing family stitches itself into the neighborhood by responding to local cues. Curved brick corners negotiate the irregular street grid, while the cadence of typical rowhouses and a palette of brick volumes and stone bases are translated into a new vocabulary.
