ALEXANDRIA

 

Situated on a high hill above the Potomac River, this residence is a study in restraint of color and of scale.

The rooms seem to follow one another in a gentle procession of function and various moods. The strong architectural elements of the home were honored and respected not honed into submission.

The use of various cool and warm grays gives a sense of calm and yet is still interesting and inspiring. Hints of color add dimension and contrast to the textures of the home.

The outdoor spaces are as important to the family as the rooms inside. The sweep of the old growth forest is accentuated by large patios designed for entertainment and quiet reflection.

This is a home that welcomes a large and busy family and brings a sense of calm and comfort from the first alarm clock going-off to the quiet sounds of the home as it settles in for the night.
