A Good Neighbor
With three kids and the husband working from home, this family had outgrown the cozy bungalow the parents had bought early in their marriage. But they loved the street in DC’s Palisades and didn’t want to leave its perch overlooking the Potomac River.
So they hired David Jones Architects to build a new four-bedroom house with a quiet third-floor office.
To keep costs down, Jones created a simple box-like design with porches on two stories overlooking the river. The jury admired the compact, beautifully proportioned plan and historical detail.
One judge liked the design’s modest elegance: “This is the kind of house you would picture as being a good neighbor.”
Mauck Zantzinger & Associates of DC was the contractor.>>Next: History Made New
