Located in the Woodridge neighborhood of DC, Quincy Street is a charming lane filled with bungalows, farmhouses and Colonial-style homes that blanket the community’s rolling hills and tree-lined streets. This development house was designed to be liked by whoever walked in through the main door. Intended for sale, the residence needed to convey a sense of community, belonging, modernity and wellbeing.
This renovation entailed maintaining the exterior character of the house and understanding the values of site. With ten identical homes on the same street, the geometrical forms of the building were kept and reinforced by the use of a simple palette of materials and patterns that would make this home stand out.
The first floor is composed of a large open space traveling from the main entrance to the rear deck. It is a multi-functional space inundated with natural light, soft tones and great circulation. Windows are located at strategic locations to provide natural ventilation and increase privacy from adjacent neighbors. The large sliding door opens up the dining room to a sun filled deck inviting nature into the home.
The lower and upper level are both designed to highlight natural light, views, ventilation, circulation and comfort. The Quincy house is a modern cocoon created to instilled a sense of wellbeing, nurture and scale.
