Stretched Double-triple Decker

This wood-frame tenement building, built as workers’ housing adjacent to the Bates Mill in Lewiston Maine, pushes the limits of the organizational and construction logic of the triple decker. There is a strange logic to the height  of the structure – no doubt driven by the maximum (barely) tolerable number of stair runs to the upper units and the (barely) in-place fire code at the time.
