The numinous shroud cascades with lingering echoes… The sweeping of glistening light pervades….The unveiling shimmer is seen as we were seen, luminous in memories of past made future.
The existing home in an existing historic neighborhood is literally a heartbeat away from the Vice President's home in Washington DC. The existing 2 story home was stripped of its faux early 1940's traditional ornaments. These were completely recycled. Further the existing brick bones were all preserved and a third floor was added. The entire interior was rebuilt to be fully 21st Century. The home was super insulated and completely sculpted by the sun and the shade. The exteriors was wrapped in perforated stainless steel as a shimmering skin with peaks at the past. The remaining was a medley of Birch Ply, sheetrock, steel and great glass floors and bridges.
