A new ground-up building, Steelhouse 1 is the front house on a truly unique 2-unit property, sharing the lot and garden space with Steelhouse 2.
This three story, three bedroom, two bathroom home has access from both the front and back of the site. Hand-crafted details and a creative, expressive use of materials unify the property.
Working on both houses in a design/build process with Zack | de Vito Architecture enabled us to approach this rare residential urban infill opportunity holistically—maximizing the small lot with well-planned, efficient spaces.
