316 South Darlington StWest Chester, PA -- The home of Michael & Lisa Martin underwent an expansion to add more living space to their historic, free-standing structure. To accommodate the expansion, a reverse sub-division was undertaken to add the vacant lot south of the current parcel. This lot is preserved as open green-space providing an extended sideyard.

The expanded structure is sensitive to the architectural dynamics of the original building with slight setbacks, compatible window treatments, and an extended porch allowing the viewer a clear understanding of the old and new aspects of the home.
