This pre-war era, traditionally-styled home in the Wesley Heights neighborhood of Washington, DC had evolved into an assembly of various additions and rehabilitations prior to the homeowner’s decision to completely transform the home into a chic, transitional style adaptation. The exterior makeover was extensive and entailed removing many of the traditional decorative features. GTM’s design replaced the windows and doors, adding a contrasting dark bronze finish, removed the Chippendale porch rail, and raised the entire roof and pitch, adding roof dormers and cladding the new roof surface with a handsome dark bronze metal.
Interior spaces throughout the home were also restyled to suit the owner’s modern lifestyle. Each space on the entry level, from Foyer to Kitchen, has been completely transformed while the second floor received equally stunning adaptations to the Master Suite and Stair Hall. Arguably the most impactful interior change is the new roof Attic space. What was once a constricted and shallow series of spaces is now a well organized procession of comfortable rooms, thanks to the new higher pitched roof. The redesign of this whole area also creates the added benefit of a taller, statelier roof-scape from the street.
