The project

Situated on an idyllic wooded lot in Bethesda, this contemporary home’s exterior of sapele mahogany, stone, stucco and metal blends beautifully with its natural environment. The large expanses of glass are strategically placed to maximize views while also carefully considering privacy from the street front. 

The interior finishes complement the exterior, echoing the mahogany and steel materials on the stair railing and built-in fireplace and storage in the double-height family room. Expansive glass sliding patio doors pocket into the exterior wall to provide a seamless indoor/outdoor living space between the family room and screened porch that extends to the rear yard’s luxurious pool and deck. 

Double-height glass walls throughout create stunning architectural moments that invite the outside into the home. The abundant natural light, dramatic height changes and strong visual axis define and draw you into eachspace.

A green roof over the screened porch continues the natural feel and warmth of the house.
