Townhouse conversion from a residential flat into five distinct condominium apartments.
This fully-leased 1980 brick and glass building required a facelift without disrupting the tenants. Our solution was to develop a lightweight limestone and aluminum skin that could be applied over the existing 30,000 square foot façade. Design Architect: Michael Winstanley Architects. Associate Architect: Square 134 Architects. Photos by Jessica Marcotte and Carl Lostritto.
This renovation of a multi-family affordable-living campus was driven initially by new massive geothermal fields, solar panel arrays, and updated kitchens and bathrooms to over 100 occupied apartment units. The design featured the renovation of all fifteen building exteriors, creation of new common amenities throughout the campus, and a complete rebuild of the community pool house to feature a Learning Center for after-school education programs.
Great care was taken in the addition and renovation of this 1950’s house, which itself was a replica of a 17th century house in Massachusetts. While more than doubling its usable area and adding a detached garage, the historic character was maintained and strict guidelines of Chevy Chase Village followed. Project Team includes Architect-of-Record: Square 134 Architects, Design Architect: David Jones Architects, Interior Designer: Garrow Kedigian, Landscape Architect: Lila Fendrick Landscape Architecture and Garden Design.
