Split Level House is a 2009 project by Qb design that is located in the Northern Liberties section of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA.

Its contemporary form is a refreshing take on the row houses that line many streets in the city.

Split Level House by Qb Design:

“Sited on a vacant corner in the Northern Liberties section of Philadelphia, this house for a growing family stitches itself into the neighborhood by responding to local cues.

Curved brick corners negotiate the irregular street grid, while the cadence of typical rowhouses and a palette of brick volumes and stone bases are translated into a new vocabulary.”
