Zoning Regulations & Other Details
Many Washington, DC area neighborhoods and communities are governed by historic district regulations or homeowner associations’ architectural controls. Our home builders are well-versed in designing a home to fit within the confines of a neighborhood’s particular rules and regulations. A neighborhood’s zoning regulations also require careful analysis when designing an addition. At Wentworth, we analyze side and rear yard regulations before suggesting a design for your new kitchen addition, bathroom addition, basement in-law suite addition, or any other type. Quality home additions in an historical neighborhood may require additional thought and time at the outset, but the result will be one that fits your modern life and your historical home.
In With the Old, In With the New
Many DC area homes offer architectural character and historical charm. You should never have to sacrifice what makes your home unique in order to add space. At every design and construction decision, a Wentworth addition design always takes the home’s existing architectural style and period into consideration. Even if you’re looking to add a modern spin to your period home, we can integrate the old and the new through the careful study of your home’s proportions, scale, rooflines, current materials and design details.
We will coordinate every detail to ensure a seamless integration of your existing home with the new addition. A Wentworth home addition will never look like it was slapped on as an afterthought. To get a clear picture of how home additions will best suit your lifestyle, our team of award-winning architects and interior designers will examine every detail of your home and its neighborhood. A truly successful home addition is one that doesn’t dwarf your home’s lot. In other words, a home addition should look like it was meant to be there.
Homeowners often underestimate the importance of rooflines when designing an addition. A home addition should be designed with a roof that resembles the existing home’s architectural style, whether it’s gable, hip, gambrel or dormers, A replication of the home’s current roof pitch ensures an integrated design with an older home. Roofing materials should also be complementary to the home’s current roofing material. Our extensive knowledge of architectural historical styles allows us to uniquely envision an addition to best fit your home’s unique features.
