SUMMARY DESCRIPTION OF PROJECT
This project is an addition to an early 20th century home in Chevy Chase on a generous corner lot. The home lacked a space for entertaining and gathering; the side entry entered directly into the breakfast room, without an important mudroom space for the young family. The first floor lacked a powder room and a screen porch. The challenge was that the client wanted the existing kitchen and breakfast room to have a direct connection to the side yard and did not want the family room to intervene. The scope of work within the existing house was limited to the breakfast room.
Our solution was to create the appearance of a converted one-story carriage house linked to the main house with a mudroom and side entry. A screen porch was added to the breakfast room with a direct connection to the outdoor terrace. The design of the additions allows the new light filled family room and the existing kitchen/breakfast room to shape a common outdoor space.
Features of the existing house, including the natural wood trim and built-in cabinets, inspired the changes to the breakfast room and the pantry built-in off the breakfast room, as well as the bar in the family room that dispenses the client’s home brewed beer.
