Client: Shirley Kablan

In this project, SPA was asked to provide design for the construction of an owner occupied four-unit apartment building in a landmark of Clinton Hilll. Traditional materials, scale, and proportion of window openings, as mandated by the historic district commission, give way to more daring design toward the back of the building. Views of project illustrate how a stained wood and steel carport/deck begin to inform the building design from the back to the front and from exterior to interior. The bottom view depicts fold-away doors at the owner’s apartment opening up to the deck above the carport and allowing the outside into the home. The rental apartments above mirror this opening of the back wall.
