  • A Historic Rowhouse Renovation in Georgetown
    A Historic Rowhouse Renovation in Georgetown
    When we walked into this 2-bedroom, 1-bath rowhome in Georgetown, it was hurting for attention. As an old candle factory, it still had the great bones of manufacturing — solid studs and hardwood floors installed to withstand time.

    But the small, dark rooms and crowded layout needed some revitalization, and that’s just what we did.

  • An Award-Winning Addition in North Arlington
    An Award-Winning Addition in North Arlington
    Both Washingtonian Magazine and the (former) Cottages Magazine recognized this cape home in North Arlington for its refreshing design. And we couldn’t be happier — this was originally an as-is property that became a labor of love for its owners and builders alike.

    The client came to us needing a complete overhaul; indeed, we restructured the entire top floor of the property and added a new wing to the side!

    A Zen, Master Suite Renovation on 13th Street
    This peaceful remodel involved the entire third floor and rear exterior landscaping of an older property on 13th Street in Washington, DC.

    We created a calming retreat from the bustling street below using a traditional master bedroom suite layout complemented by modern details and natural materials. We capitalized on the building’s historic details, restoring beautiful elements to their formal glory while integrating functional storage elements in subtle ways.

    We specialize in conducting major additions and renovations with extreme consideration for the client’s living environment.

    So when we began planning this three-story, rear addition — which would create a new kitchen and master bedroom suite — we were strategic about ensuring the client could continue having a functional eating and sleeping space while construction was completed.

    Remodeling a Small Space with Big Personality
    This tiny apartment — which is featured in the book, “Inside the Not So Big House” — only has 650 square feet.

    But we transformed it into a gracious home that maximized its natural character, created joyful living areas that were flexible and efficient, and seamlessly fused traditional detailing and modern materials.

  • A Palisades Community Pool House in Cabin John
    A Palisades Community Pool House in Cabin John
    We were welcomed into a community in the Palisades area of Cabin John, MD, to reconstruct a failing community pool property. What likely was the most modern facilities around 40 years ago was sorely in need of updates, and we were happy to help.

    During the coldest days on the job as we worked all winter long, we kept plugging along knowing that the final product would be opened to delighted crowds under a May sun — and the final result was even more rewarding!

    We’re like connoisseurs of small spaces — seeing opportunities in even the most non-assuming spots. And that eye for space maximization came in handy for this full-apartment renovation in an historic, Beaux Arts building on Ontario Street in Washington, DC.

    A Whimsical Treehouse Built to Last for Decades
    We don’t often get to draw on the fond memories of tree climbing from our own youth when building projects.

    But that’s exactly what was required of this enthusiastic challenge — while preserving the growing tree as its anchor, build a home that adults and children can share some fanciful, imaginative whimsy. Right in the background of an urban, Washington, DC, home

    A Fresh Renovation Fit For Energetic Gatherings
    This vibrant kitchen in Northwest DC was an afterthought. Really!

    The world-traveling clients who spend time in this home when not adventuring abroad had initially hired us to create an apartment in the basement of this property. But while we were working on their new, revenue-generating property down below, the couple — who was coming back from spending time in Africa — decided to redesign their kitchen upstairs.

    A Fixture-Inspired, Vibrant Kitchen Remodel
    This design-build project started with a conversation more than five years ago. The client knew she wanted to remodel her kitchen and she wanted to take an active role in its design. But she wasn’t quite sure just where to start.

    One day, we got a call from her — she knew where to start: with the knobs!
