Habitat: A Bright Green Menagerie in South Philly
It should come as no surprise that the South Philadelphia home of a Philadelphia Zoo primate keeper and an environmental engineer would be replete in flora and fauna (living and taxidermied). And yet – and yet! – the rowhouse unfolds in room after room of delights.
Samantha Nestor (the primate keeper) and Andrew Haneiko (the environmental engineer) bought the home in 2005 and have been renovating ever since. We are as gaga for the animal-centric details in this house and the ways in which they sneak up on you as we are for the talented Laura Kicey‘s photos.
Sure, this looks like a standard chartreuse living room.
But, surprise! It is also a reptile house for rescues, home to the couple’s iguana, king snake and lizard.
Some details are tucked away, but others are … framed a little more clearly.
The dining room is covered with silhouettes wild and domesticated.
