Historic Eastern Market Row House Addition and Basement Renovation

One of the requirements of working in a historic district is to create and build new, modern, and sometimes large spaces that still manage to respect the scale and feel of the original structure. This project was built with a modest and historic-respecting front facade that leaves no impression that the house was substantially rebuilt to almost 3x it's original size. Technical challenges were significant, including underpinning of the adjacent neighbors' 4-story building in order to achieve a full-height basement. Project design by Lawlor Architects
