Jigsaw Residence in Bethesda, Maryland by David Jameson Architect

Saturday, November 30th, 2013

Article source: David Jameson Architect

Recycling a single story suburban house located on a busy corner site, Jigsaw introverts itself in a continuous spatial flow around an open air courtyard carved from the home’s remains. A matrix of spaces is linked by movement through them as storeys merge and spaces relate to each other as they rise and fall in a series of interlocked puzzle-like volumes. Particularity rather than repetition is employed giving a unique three dimensional framework to each space where plan and section respond to program simultaneously.

Wissioming2 in Bethesda, Maryland by Robert M. Gurney Architect

Saturday, May 26th, 2012

Article source: Robert M. Gurney Architect

Located in Glen Echo, Maryland, just outside of Washington, DC this new house is sited on a sloping, wooded lot with distant views of the Potomac River.  The house is positioned to preserve a majority of mature trees and is oriented toward the river views and south facing slope. The house is organized into two volumes connected with glass bridges that span a reflecting pool which separates the volumes.  Secondary volumes intersect and overlap the two larger structures rendering the composition more dynamic.  Material changes in the various elements intensify the relationships.  Expanses of glass open to a terrace organized around a swimming pool with two “infinity” edges reinforcing the connectivity to the wooded landscape.

NaCl House in Bethesda, Maryland by David Jameson Architect

Tuesday, May 1st, 2012

Article source: David Jameson Architect

Breaking the prescriptive mold of horizontally layered homes, NaCl House aspires to render unclear the spatial organization of the project and explore an architecture of ambiguous scale. The resultant massing reveals an imperfect, rough-hewn form recalling the natural isometric formation of mineral rock salt.

Wissioming Residence in Bethesda, Maryland by Robert Gurney Architect

Thursday, February 10th, 2011

This house located in Glen Echo, Maryland is sited on a heavily wooded lot overlooking the Potomac River. Glen Echo stands as a rare enclave of modern houses in suburban Washington, DC. The new house occupies the footprint of a pre-existing house in an effort to minimally disturb the site, removing no mature hardwoods in the process. A new swimming pool is suspended twenty feet above grade to further reduce the impact to the steeply sloping site.
