Sudbury House

A transformation and expansion of brick midcentury house in a wooded neighborhood of Northwest Washington D.C. for a young family.

The balancing of texture, heft, and lightness are at work in a building that is unapologetically modern but modest despite a significant enlargement. The existing brick base of the building is extended and lime washed to highlight its texture and a taught, machined aluminum volume containing bedrooms and a planted courtyard are added. A new stair hall affords visibility up and through the three levels of the house and is capped with a wide skylight allowing natural light to pour into the center of the house.

Currently in construction.
