Great Home Design

By: Mary Clare Glover

The March issue of The Washingtonian, on newsstands today, features a package of articles on great home design. You can take a peek inside the homes of eight top area architects, including those of modernists Hugh Newell Jacobsen and Robert Gurney as well as traditional masters David Jones and David Neumann. This picture shows the remodeled home of local architect Ben Ames, who spent two years living in a tiny pillbox-style home before transforming it. Huge trapezoidal windows take advantage of the woodsy setting and flood the ultramodern home with natural light.

We also list 37 architects who design beautiful homes, additions, and renovations, and let you know where they shop for furnitre accessories, rugs, lighting, kitchen fixtures, and custom cabinetry. Click here to browse project photos from some of the top architects featured in the magazine.
