Contemporary Luxury at Home in its Natural Surroundings

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 built-ins and stair railing. A double-height family room with large built-in fireplace and storage, clad in sapele mahogany, visually unifies the exterior and interior architecture. 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 the main living area create stunning architectural moments that also invite the outside into the home. The abundant natural light, dramatic height changes and strong visual axis help to define and draw you into each space. A green roof over the screened porch softens the view from the upper balconies and continues the natural feel and warmth of the house.
