"A historically accurate "Country Victorian" home"
For this home, set within an established neighborhood, the owner sought a design that expressed enduring architectural values of grace, elegance, and comfort. With these objectives in mind, along with the goal of ensuring that the home would be contextually compatible despite its large size, the owner opted for Victorian-style architecture with a thoughtful, asymmetrical massing that minimizes its stature in the neighborhood. The four-story home integrates modern systems and appliances, while incorporating period fixtures and architectural detailing. CLIENT: Private Owner SIZE: 13,000 sq ft RECOGNITION: The elevation drawings were exhibited in the American Architectural Foundation’s “Hidden Treasures from the Permanent Prints and Drawings Collection” at the Octagon Museum, Washington, DC; and are now part of the permanent Print and Drawing Collection of the Library of Congress.
