Qb is an award winning Philadelphia design studio, specializing in architecture, graphic design and product design. Our work explores the individual qualities of each design discipline while finding commonalities between them. Our process is a search to reveal the essence of each situation; making objects and spaces that convey a sense of simplicity, humanity and permanence.

Split Level House: Sited on a vacant corner in Philadelphia, this house stitches itself into the neighborhood by responding to local cues. Curved brick corners negotiate the irregular street grid, while the cadence of typical rowhouses and a palette of brick volumes and stone bases are translated into a new vocabulary.
