Walker Residence

Extensive interior renovations and a metal clad 2-story rear addition create a modern oasis for a couple returning to Washington DC after a stint in Los Angeles.  Purchased as a shell in an established historic neighborhood a couple of miles north of the White House, this 1913 rowhouse carefully conceals the new modern design behind its preserved Mediterranean front façade.  New, carefully located fenestrations include a giant oculus in the master bath, a band of transoms and sidelights in the kitchen that all exploit light and provide views to the garden and the sky.
