Peterson Residence in Chevy Chase, Maryland by Robert M. Gurney

Thursday, September 1st, 2011

Article source: Robert M. Gurney, FAIA, Architect

Located in Chevy Chase, Maryland, this project involves a complete renovation and substantial addition to a familiar, simply massed brick “colonial”.   The original, gable shaped volume fronting the street is minimally altered in an effort to retain the scale and massing of neighboring houses.  Tall windows are incorporated into the existing façade.  A copper clad, vaulted volume is integrated into the composition with a new front porch and wide stairs, invoking the nostalgic porches found throughout the neighborhood.

The Roberts Residence in Rockville, Maryland by Division1 Architect

Article source: Division1

The ¾ acre site of the Roberts Residence is bound by, a residential street along its west edge, single-family detached residences on adjacent lots to the north and south, and a wooded park towards the rear. At the front of the site along the street edge the site drops almost immediately by 8 feet. Only the roof of the house is visible from the street. The site continues to slope gently dipping another 12 feet until it reaches the wooded park to the rear of the site.

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.

Harkavy Residence in Potomac, Maryland by Robert M. Gurney Architect

Wednesday, February 9th, 2011

This house of 2900 square feet is located on a one acre, wooded lot, adjacent to park land outside of Washington, DC. The house is sited away from the road and oriented toward views deep into the woods. The sequence of entry is defined by a series of walls, intended to privatize and delineate the approach and entry into the house. The walls, garage volume and house become a threshold between the road and the wooded parkland.
