David Jameson Architect has finished work on the groundbreaking BlackWhite Residence. The light-toned building is located in Bethesda, Md. The designers were tasked with first restoring the old lower level of the gas-silica block house in the woods. To repair the box, builders even had to purchase identical structures, so damaged was the structure.
The project was designed in such a way that an additional second floor made of metal profiles and double-glazed windows could be mounted on a load-bearing box. This architectural solution gave a more modern look to the residence, which was one of the goals. It also gave the occupants a great view of the site's wooded area. Big windows allow us to light the room naturally and qualitatively. This is very important nowadays, as energy resources are getting more expensive every year. Also in the forest residence was installed a system "Smart House", which allowed to reduce the cost of electricity consumption.
The exterior of the BlackWhite Residence uses a simple combination of two common colors, black and white, inherent in modern homes. The dwelling continues to inhabit the space of the old shell, keeping the owners' familiar comfortable life. After upgrading the main level to a luxurious standard, the architects went on to further develop the building. They added a much smaller addition, which added a touch of extravagance to the complex. The second level is represented by four simple but effective glass temples. They can be used as an expansive dwelling.
From the outside, the forest home looks simple. It stands out clearly against the green trees. The interior consists of modern office furniture in a modern frame.
