Qb - Split Level House

Qb is a multi-disciplinary design studio out of Philadelphia. They sent over one of their latest architecture projects - the Split Level House. The Split Level House is sited on a vacant corner in Philadelphia. I appreciate the seemingly solid facade, which has voids carved out of it to allow light into the house. The interior spaces wrap around the three-story glass entry, framing views in and out of the house. The split nature of interior spaces allows for a transparency within the house, creating visual and spatial connections between the different rooms.


  1. well, that is one pretty place. such an amazing use of that corner lot!

  2. thats a lot of dang windows to clean.

  3. Love this! It has a similar style to a gut rehab my husband and I are doing to a brick single family home in Boston.
