Located in Chevy Chase, Maryland, this project involves a complete renovation and substantial addition to a familiar, simply massed brick “colonial”. The original, gable shaped volume fronting the street is minimally altered in an effort to retain the scale and massing of neighboring houses. Tall windows are incorporated into the existing façade. A copper clad, vaulted volume is integrated into the composition with a new front porch and wide stairs, invoking the nostalgic porches found throughout the neighborhood.Save this picture!© Maxwell MacKenzie Architectural PhotographerTo reduce the massing as seen from the street, the majority of new space is added to the back of the house. Living spaces are relocated to the “garden” side of the property, away from the street. Save this picture!© Maxwell MacKenzie Architectural PhotographerA new terrace and rigorously designed landscape elements, including walkways, walls and plantings become an integral part of the design. A garden structure, constructed of dry-stacked stone, mahogany, steel and copper roofing anchors the composition and provides privacy from adjoining properties. The entirety of the lot is incorporated into the design of this project. Save this picture!© Maxwell MacKenzie Architectural PhotographerThe light filled interiors are ordered and open, crisply detailed and minimal while retaining richness and warmth. Quarter-sawn white oak cabinetry and millwork, dark stained oak flooring, and mahogany screens are combined with travertine, black granite and limestone to comprise the majority of the material palette. Furnishings are selected to be harmonious with finishes and spatial composition.

This project demonstrates an attempt to provide the spatial requirements desired for a current lifestyle in a manner that retains much of the existing building fabric and a significant amount of the site to incorporate landscape and garden.Save this picture!Floor PlansProject gallerySee allShow lessBusan Opera House Proposal / WEAVA ArchitectsArticlesThe Grove / Debartolo ArchitectsArticles Share Houses 2009 Projects United States ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard CopyHouses, Renovation•Chevy Chase, United States CopyAbout this officeRobert Gurney ArchitectOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationResidentialHousesChevy ChaseUnited StatesPublished on August 21, 2011Cite: “Peterson Residence / Robert Gurney Architect” 21 Aug 2011.
