Description:

Metcalfe Architecture and Design as of late finished the redesign of the Seidenberg House in Lafayette Hill, Pennsylvania, USA. This beforehand restored mid-century cutting edge unit house exploits its immaculate area in the rich forests of Southeastern Pennsylvania.

Seidenberg-House-01We pushed the upper level of this structure into the treetops, changing it into a house in the sky, with an extended second-floor living space and passage, and revamped kitchen, living zones and bathrooms.

We reconfigured the little, existing passageway into a sky lit two story section corridor, crossed by a glass footbridge on the second story. This corridor now leads into logically more open kitchen, feasting and living spaces. New windows in the kitchen and feasting region give all encompassing perspectives of the outside.

The second story main room and shower expansion (fig. 8) turned into an extensive, light-filled desert spring in the treetops. With staggering perspectives of the encompassing scene, we made the presence of a gliding rooftop in the room, utilizing clerestory windows and eight foot tall glass entryways that open onto the suite’s cantilevered overhang. The steel and safety glass footbridge, created by a nearby artisan, connects the main room and shower to whatever is left of the house.
