Lincoln Street Residence in Bethesda, Maryland by EL STUDIO

Friday, March 9th, 2018

Article source: EL STUDIO

This modest renovation resists the current inner-ring suburban trend towards demolition of older, smaller homes in favor of new over-scaled ‘farmhouses.’ The clients, a young family with two small children wanted more space for play and individual bedrooms but expressed a desire not to ‘lose one another’ in a home too vast or impersonal. Their one-story bungalow, a relic of the first wave of suburban development in this area, has been expanded through the careful integration of appropriately scaled additional program and volume. The modest scale of the addition both responds to the client’s programmatic needs and limits the environmental footprint of the proposal. A carport and efficiency apartment on the first floor were removed to make way for a new addition containing a first-floor playroom and a partial second story with side-by-side bedrooms for the children connected through a ‘Jack & Jill’ bathroom as well as a new Master Suite. The family room’s double-height volume binds all of the above and provides access to the garden beyond through a covered porch tucked under the Master Suite. Strategically placed south-facing roof apertures capture and direct daylight deep into the north-facing playroom and porch year-round, reducing the need for artificial lighting. New expansive windows frame views to a mature Japanese maple tree in the yard.

Mid Century Modern Residence in Montgomery County, Maryland by Studio Twenty Seven Architecture

Thursday, January 4th, 2018

Article source: Studio Twenty Seven Architecture

The mid-century modern home was less than two thousand square feet, yet beautifully sited on a densely wooded hill.  The property provided an extraordinary amount of privacy and seclusion for a house less than four miles from the District of Columbia.  Despite the very limited amount of space for a family of four, the clients purchased the property immediately.   Five years later, with their two children rapidly approaching teen-age years, the time had come to look at a house expansion.

House on Solitude Creek in St. Michaels, Maryland by Robert M. Gurney, FAIA, Architect

Friday, March 25th, 2016

Article source: Robert M. Gurney, FAIA, Architect

The design of this house in St. Michaels, Maryland was greatly influenced by environmental regulations, zoning requirements and restrictive building codes specific to this site. The existing Dutch Colonial Style house, built in 1989, was located within a One-Hundred Foot Buffer Zone on Solitude Creek, a small estuary in this Maryland Eastern Shore town. A recently adopted Floodplain Management Ordinance mandated that no new structures be built within the Buffer Zone, and that all renovated or altered existing structures be updated to meet new zoning, building and environmental code requirements.

MPower Yoga Studio in Baltimore, Maryland by J. Neal Design

Wednesday, February 25th, 2015

Article source: J. Neal Design

A complete renovation on the ground floor of Baltimore’s Natty Boh Tower located in Canton, Baltimore, Mpower Yoga has been a game changing challenge and real privilege to work through. A close working relationship with the client, and a local architectural visualization firm lent towards a fast track design-build process yielding a high level of quality, customization, and coordination of comprehensive mechanical systems to best meet the needs of a hot yoga studio. The end product included two hot studio classrooms, fully equipped locker rooms, lounge and retail space, as well as back of house administrative functionality and storage. Despite the challenges of working within the constraints of an existing, and smaller than hoped for space, we were able to wrap the project up from schematic design to complete construction within a year’s time.

Riggins House in Cabin John, Maryland by Robert M. Gurney

Tuesday, February 4th, 2014

Article source: Robert M. Gurney

Located in Cabin John, Maryland, this 4,900 square foot house is sited at the end of a manicured lawn, and looks over the edge of a steeply sloping wooded site adjacent to the C&O Canal and the Potomac River.  A light-filled double height circulation axis separates the house’s main volumes, while transverse axes further organize the spaces. Glass and steel bridges cross the circulation space to connect the volumes on the second floor. Primary living spaces bounded by large expanses of glass are oriented towards the river, while secondary spaces open to the lawn.

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.
