A 1920s bungalow in Washington, D.C., needed a renovation, so the firm designed a compatible addition. The scope also incorporated an upgrade of the existing spaces for contemporary living, including a primary suite, a new kitchen/sitting room, and an accessory dwelling unit. Presenting many challenges, the project required a complete gut of the house, down to its studs and framing.

Moving doors, opening up the existing stairs, and installing new windows to bring in more light corrected existing deficiencies. The addition creates a seamless experience from old to new, both inside and out. The contemporary spaces do not lose the feeling of the old bungalow, and all the systems were upgraded, namely insulation, solar panels, energy-efficient windows and hot water.
