The project called for a complete renovation and rooftop extension to an run-down post war duplex in Little Italy. The top floor and extension will house the owner and his family with the lower unit renovated to be rented out. In a neighbourhood filled with one and two storey structures we thought it important to maintain the character of the original structure as much as possible. In order to do so the smaller intervention is made unapologetically contemporary, perched distinctively atop the older structure, the volume of which remains intact.
