Located in Washington’s Phillips Park, this design would be equally comfortable in the Mediterranean. That was the goal for our clients, who were building on a tight, inner-city lot with views to a neighboring park.
The house stretches long across the site to maximize views and bring as much sunlight as possible into the interior. The garage wing creates an L-shaped entry forecourt with a pergola that welcomes visitors to the front door. Simple detailing; punched openings in smooth white stucco walls; and a clay barrel-tile roof give the house that modern Mediterranean feel our clients were after.
