Page Place Apartments

City of Pittsburgh, PA

Services: Architectural, Interior Design.

Project Narrative: Located in the Manchester Historical District of Pittsburgh, Page Place is designed specifically to address the needs of disabled persons. Its features include complete handicap accessibility, as well as internal supportive medical and counseling services for its occupants.

Working closely with the community and with the City Historic Review Commission, the design of the three-story, 21-unit building was developed with sensitivity to its surrounding Victorian-era neighborhood.

Although it was constructed with contemporary fire-resistive structural
components, such as pre-cast floor plank and masonry bearing walls, Page
Place presents the appearance of a classic multi-occupant row structure, with a rusticated base, large vertical windows, and a mansard roof with dormers. In addition, the building’s scale respects the proportions of the neighboring structures and provides a visual end to Page Street
