Two-Story Home Addition

Northwest Washington, DC

Two-story Tudor-style addition was built above an existing basement-level garage; half-timbering and stucco detailing harmonize with existing house; whimsical curved shed dormer provides additional headroom at upper floor and gives rear addition distinctive character

Rear addition harmonizes with 1920s Tudor home and its architectural detailing; house features copper gutters, half-timber and stucco façade, custom corbeled brickwork, and casement windows
Easy rear parking provides convenient entry; in an area of limited parking, homeowners frequently use rear garage entry and this “alley side” is enhanced by the addition, designed to enhance character and presence; Hubbardton Forge lighting enhances exterior and provides dark-sky-friendly illumination for rear façade
Tall casement windows with transoms allow ample natural light into sunroom addition; new construction features custom random-width pegged oak flooring to replicate existing living and dining room floors
Windows and doors wrap three sides of sunroom addition, providing ample sunlight and natural ventilation
Accent walls with hints of color are unobtrusively placed to surprise the viewer
French doors with transom lead from the sunroom to a Juliet balcony
