Various Projects
Philadelphia, PA

At One Franklin Town, we created a new experience for residents, reconfiguring all public spaces and amenities. We also re-envisioned the aging 50's pre-cast concrete facades with an entirely new exterior appearance via a rich grey toned color scheme, a new steel and glass suspended entry canopy, and the redesign of two large urban courtyards into a "nature lounge" and yoga+fitness court, connecting to an indoor-outdoor swimming pool. The subsequent phase completes the living experience with a bicycle studio and business center. A block away at North|Northwest, we created two new roof decks overlooking the Philadelphia skyline. The decks are conceived as "sculpture gardens" in the sky, utilizing western red cedar forms, and glass railings to maximize connection to the immediate Center City neighborhood and the skyline beyond.
