Black and white house in Arlington

This project won the Arlington design award 2021
This residence is a typical 1950’s Arlington brick construction in the heart of the Clarendon neighborhood. The design concept for this remodeling emphasizes the front facade and its relationship with the new redesigned open plan concept interior. A new open floor plan at the first floor, with 9’ cathedral ceiling heights, allows a more modern way living to this young couple. We worked out a completely new floor plan in the existing footprint, reusing these same bearing points with a new LVL beams structure for the 2 new roofs. One in the front, built as a reverse dormer to give 12 foot ceiling height and a cathedral ceiling on the interior. A second one larger and flat, in the back, to give 10 foot continuous ceiling height. The house had typical 8 foot ceiling. Through the new tall front openings, we visually connected this now more “urban” house, to the vibrant and fast developing neighborhood.

The shell and the old foundation of the house was reinforced, and we added the back part of the house which is a modern spacious and open ceiling kitchen area including an open riser iron stairs, offering unobstructed views throughout the home and a beautiful weightless appearance for a focus point.
