Were you the kid who built forts out of cardboard boxes? Did you pass geometry with flying colors? Does the idea of cleaning out gutters make you cringe? If you answered yes to any of these questions, Wiedemann Architects’ Mohican Hills residence in Bethesda might be up your alley.

The brown, boxy, 2,100-square-foot display of modern architecture will appeal to those with an affinity for right angles and natural lighting. The jury at the Maryland AIA Design Awards said that the house “struck us right away as being just an excellently done, consistent modern residence. In particular the flow of space from the living room to the pool, the whole inside/outside relationship that is the hallmark of modern architecture is beautifully handled in this project.”
