Modern Rear Addition, Chevy Chase DC
The owners of this traditional house in NW Washington, came to us to design a modern 3-story addition onto the rear of their home. The primary goal was to add a 1st floor family / dining room, renovate the kitchen, and add a 2nd floor bedroom suite. The addition features a large north facing glass wall in the family / dining room and in the master suite, dramatically opening up the house to natural light and views of a beautiful private garden and beyond. The unfinished steel surround and stone mantel at the fireplace along with the maple wall panels and custom built-ins create a warm interior. The exterior finishes consist of an aluminum and glass curtain-walls system, prefinished aluminum standing seam roofing / siding and rear wall stucco in-fills.
