Located 5 miles north of Washington DC, the project is a renovated residence for a young family situated among a subdivision of utilitarian post war houses.
The 2250sf residence takes the form of a simple mass whose purity is interrupted by the void space of a carport. Bounded by an introverted exterior, luminous living spaces unfold in a series of interlocking volumes that are more urban and contained. Stairs become a series of intersecting diagonal slices through space. Cement board sheets are sheared into abstract siding shingles that contribute to the unreadable scale of the building.
