On the border of East Liberty & Highland Park, this 2,400 sq ft house, built in 1900 is a two-family home in the process of being converted into a single-family mid century modern delight! The original home had many mid-century design elements, which served as the inspiration for the design. My design highlights the unique features of the home while modernizing the space and introducing high-end features. The two-sided fireplaces are being re-imagined on both the first and second floors and is a true focal point within the home. More to come as this project progresses.
