Unusual Split-Level House in Philadelphia

I’m sure you’ve all seen at least one negative example of a modern construction built in a historic neighborhood. Not all really manage to fit in, do they? Today we would like to show you a different approach, a project which we consider to be perfectly integrated in its environment. Situated in Philadelphia, the Split-Level House comes from Qb, an architecture studio which also deals with design. The main materials used in order to complete the construction and to give it an inviting look were polished concrete, wood and steel. The contrast between them give the building its unique exterior style.Three-story high, the place also has a roof garden for private gatherings.

    it’s quite interesting I guess. though I don’t take on for fun the open window-glass so outsiders can deliberately see the inside how empty the house is. contrasts to other houses in the neighborhood, I’d be embarrassed.

    Split-level designs are modern scheme with different approach and construction structuring to building houses. And I must say, the home photos above convey real modern interiors with glass architecture motif. The black-white colors inside the house with wood integration on the flooring make it look stylishly inviting and comfortable to just anybody who would be inside of it.
