New Single Family House, Gathersburg, MD
The owners’ desire to transition easily from hosting an elegant dinner party to informal living with 3 children and pets inspired the graceful open-space design for this new single family home in the rolling horse country of Maryland. An attached greenhouse, solar panels, and natural ventilation are some of the environmentally sensitive features. Details like the rain chain enhance the charm of this house. Spaces like the entry foyer were designed around the owners’ collection of kimonos and furniture from Japan.
