Contemporary Cape Cod Addition


If you live inside of the DC beltway, there’s a good chance your neighborhood is well established, public transportation is nearby, and your house is a small traditional colonial. It’s a tradeoff between a modern, spacious home and a tolerable commute.

When you look at this red brick Cape Cod from the front, it looks just as tiny as all the other houses on the street.

But walk around to the back of the house and you face a stunning, contemporary addition that still manages to look like it belongs. An abundance of glass fills the addition with natural light and provides an unobscured view of the golf course adjacent to the property. We extended the roofline to shade the deck and protect the interior dining area from the heat and glare of direct sun.
