Chalon Residence



Sited on a two acre wooded lot in Bethesda, Md, this project,  the home of a young couple and their six children, combines a main house, small guest house and a pool & pergola. From initial discussions and earliest sketches our design focused on the dual intentions of integrating building & landscape and developing an architecture that melds a tactile legibility with the abstractions of element and mass, core ideas of modernism.
Facing a large stand of old growth hardwoods, the ground floor is predominately floor to ceiling glass. The upper floors, sitting a structure of fir posts and beams, are simple masses clearly expressing the construction and composition of the design.  Massive stone chimneys anchor the assembly to the site.
