2. Meet The Developer

As demonstrated by many of his award-winning commissions, the Philadelphia architect Wesley Wei is marvelously adept at creating clean, contemporary dwellings within historical frameworks. The Ayer is the most recent of his celebrated works. “My goal was to respect the bones and details of the original building while creating clean, modern residences that reflect how we live today,” explains Wei. “The days of service at the dining table are increasingly rarefied. Most people live informally. So I’ve made the spaces between kitchen, dining room and living room open and organic.”As a result of Wei’s trademark modernist approach, the living spaces are unhampered by light blocking walls. “I wanted to take maximum advantage of the massive windows and high ceilings,” says Wei. “By not strictly defining living spaces, we’ve been able to capitalize on the great light while also giving the residences an easy, elegant flow.” The distinctive Wei imprint is also seen in this use of substantial materials. “I prefer to add texture and color to a space with natural materials rather than with paint,” says Wei. “In the case of The Ayer, These materials are natural stone and wood.”
