The Charlotte Street residence is located in Pittsburgh’s urban Lawrenceville neighborhood which, like the city itself, is in the midst of an amazing rehabilitation. The Charlotte Street Residence is a former row house, which was transformed into a contemporary single-family home that maximizes light, air and functional space on a mere 14 foot wide lot. In reference to the context, the fenestration of the window openings complements others typical of this neighborhood, while a large picture window in the front room and double glass doors to the first floor terrace channel ample light into the structure.
The row house façade takes a playful tone, with a mix of exterior cladding materials and horizontal red projections dividing up the three stories and making the narrow parcel stand out. Inside, the open first floor living and dining space also features an outdoor terrace. On the second floor, there are two large bedrooms, a guest bath and separate laundry room. The modern third floor master suite has roof deck access, where residents enjoy the open air and skyline views.
