The Rittenhouse Square Project

Custom millwork and finishes give this 4,000-square-foot apartment a classic elegance befitting a pre-war high-rise in the Center City District of Philadelphia. Throughout the home, decorative molding, faux finishes and wood paneling on the walls of multiple rooms stay true to the building’s period roots. So, too, does the addition of hidden sliding doors that connect to secret compartment and a “mouse house,” inspired by vintage cartoons and visible through the baseboard in a hallway, that features miniaturized furnishings.
