A stamped metal skin punctuated by yellow glowing balconies catches your eye mid-block at night. A time capsule of memories, and the victim of poorly done home owner repairs, it is the polished twin to its old neighbor. Clad in material meant for roofing it harkens to the metal stamped siding of 100 years ago. Modern white balconies slice across the south elevations to indicate this isn’t grandmas anymore. Inside original oak hardwoods were meticulously salvaged to patch in where walls formerly constricted rooms into tiny kitchens and hopelessly small bedrooms. Reconfigured for a real master suite with large walk in closets and shower the old brick chimneys nod towards a time before the super-efficient building envelope and furnace. CNC cut handrails by sculptor Asheer Akram juxtapose turn of the century balusters and you continually get a sense of history, hip charm and modern reinvention.
