Fox Way Residence

Posted: October 30, 2019 | Projects

This newly constructed contemporary home was built on a narrow lot in an urban neighborhood of mostly 100+ year old houses. Though the 2,472-square-foot structure features a modern design on both the exterior and the interior, it still manages to fit into the fabric of the historic neighborhood as though it had always been there.
