Bringing Together Sculpture, Landscape & Architecture

. . . To Fundamentally Enhance Your Relationship with Home & Garden

First Floor Remodel for Aging-in-Place

Excellent Storage Under Cooktop

A 1950’s brick cape in Bethesda, Maryland was remodeled for full wheelchair accessibility with new kitchen and master suite all within the existing footprint.

Family Room Completes a Small House

Family Room Addition

My client needed a comfortable place to congregate with friends and family — a place connected to her kitchen and the back yard. We made it happen with this 20 ft by 16 ft sunroom connected to the original home through a previously enclosed back porch.

A Small Yard Now Big on Entertaining

The conversation area, fire pit, and views through the cable rails draws the family and visitors into the previously uninviting yard.

My client lamented that they rarely ventured in to the yard and only occasionally ate on the deck.   With judicial use of existing elements and few bold strokes, they now have spaces that they use and entertain in almost daily.

Making Room for Baby

Combined Family / Dining Room

My clients live in a 1930’s brick story and a-half cottage. The 2 bedrooms upstairs and small compartmentalized rooms on the first floor just weren’t working once they added their second child.

Urban Renovation

The small semi-detached home was opened up front to back

We opened up this 1930’s brick semi-detached home in Washington, DC. We turned the small cramped rooms into a light-filled, open-plan space that still retains intimacy and original details.

Modern Kitchen & Laundry Remodel

Bright, Modern Kitchen

My client’s 30-year old kitchen and adjacent laundry room were tired and falling apart. They wanted an ultra modern kitchen but with a touch of warmth.

Sculptural Landscape

This outdoor room is at once dramatic and intimate – providing privacy from a very close neighbor, inviting indoor-outdoor living, and the sounds and fragrance of the modern garden.

Opening Up a 1930’s Cape Code

Opening Up a 1930's Cape

The typical small house built in the 1930’s — with small, cut-off rooms — creates the opportunity for a different type of “great room”. Instead of a single (too often sterile space), we create a “great room” composed of interconnected spaces that blur the lines between kitchen, living, dining and study. This type of opening-up with the existing footprint creates the ability to be together while still engaging in separate activities. It’s an inviting, nurturing type of family life.
