Professional Process from Idea to Final products.
A sanctuary in the woods, the Beech Residence is carefully hidden from the bustle of the beltway. The stone façade reinforces its reverence to nature while its bay windows and hexagonal corners provide for panoramic apertures of the woods to incorporate the natural habitat from within. Through a careful siting of the building boundaries, the complexities of the wooded valley defining the lot have been embraced: the building footprint was configured to optimize access to the various entryways, ensure privacy in personal areas, and provide afternoon sunlight in living spaces. And with its expansive interior spans and revealing cross-section, space is fluid and loft-like within.
