Situated on a formerly vacant urban parcel, the project repairs the street edge and adds immediate density to a well established neighborhood, thus avoiding the environmental impact of developing suburban greenfields or productive farmlands.

The site, a flat lot is bounded by houses on either side and synagogue pre-school in the back. The house is located in the center of the lot toward the front setback to maximize a sizable rear yard to provide room for exercise of the family’s two large dogs. All hard surfaces, including the driveway and the terrace, are planned to be permeable to allow stormwater to percolate into the ground.
