Architecture DC / Rooms of Ones's Own: Exemplary Condominium and Multi-family Projects

"The O/K Calvert Street project, an 1,850-square-foot, one-bedroom condominium in Washington's Woodley Park neighborhood, converted a dark, north-facing unit in a 1970s era building into a light-suffused residence with an almost Zen-like serenity."

Once a neighborhood wallflower, this remodeled modernist "box" blossoms into the life of the party. The design's bold, idiosyncratic personality perfectly suits a dual role as family home and occasional concert venue.

Honor Award / 2013 VSAIA Design Awards for Interiors

The Watergate is considered one of Washington’s most desirable addresses. This 1,250-sf, 14th-floor unit with 8’4” ceilings tends to present a low horizon. Offsetting that are spectacular views up the Potomac River. The completely reconfigured space has formal clarity and orientation to the river. Detailing is minimal and crisp. Forms and textures both unify and diversify spatial qualities. The jury commended the clever use of geometry to enlarge the feel of the apartment greatly. Moreover, they said, “furniture choices and the subdued material palette honor the legacy of this 1960s masterpiece"

Outside the Box / 2013 Remodeling Design Award

The judges scored the remodel very highly in all categories. They complimented this whole-house remodel on its ability to stand out while working within the constraints of the budget, calling it a simple but “fresh” project. Another element that appealed to them was the deck detail of steel beams rising at an angle

Kit of Parts / AIA Award - 2011

Jury Comments " Just as the title says, it seems to be well thought-out. The "kit of parts" does a nice job of transforming itself as it moves through the house while not overwhelming the house....It is conceptually strong and innovative in its approach. To do a lot with very little intervention and actually transform the space is pretty remarkable."

The Crib / AIA Award - 2011

Jury Comments "This is a really fun project, like a folly. But it demonstrates some really intelligent strategies when it comes to prefabricating or preassembling the structure. The interior spaces were light-filled and obviously connected to the outside. For a very small space, they actually do quite a bit with it....They didn 't shy away from being playful with modern, iconic forms and the silhouette."

A Kit of Parts - Design Award Winner

As so often happens with remodels, this project started as a simple request for bookshelves and then got bigger. But not bigger than it needed to be—thanks to an ingenious “kit of parts,” designed by McInturff Architects, which completely transformed the living spaces inside this classic bungalow with nary a structural change, other than moving a couple of windows.

Fine Design Award

  • Years in Business: 16
  • Speciality: Full-service remodeling

While most businesses mentioned in this category are design/build, Added Dimensions is a build-only company with close ties to architects and a dedication to fine craftsmanship and contemporary design.

That original model extends to the way they run their company. Kanner and Hazboun hire mature employees who have, in addition to their skills, “a [way] of making clients feel comfortable,” Kanner says. AD’s five superintendents feel a deep connection to the company and are committed to its focus on contemporary design.


  • The company has worked with some of the top contemporary architects in Washington, D.C. “If we see a project in a magazine that we like, we contact the architect,” Hazboun says. “Once the connection is made, we focus on developing a relationship and a sense of teamwork with the architect and their client.”

Notable quotes:  “Everyone in the company should have a life outside their work,” Kanner says.
“We insist that people who work for us do so not because … it’s a meal ticket,” Kanner says. “We [want] people using their own initiative.” -Stacey Freed

"The highlight of the apartment is the kitchen, a module of cherry wood and frosted glass cabinets in the shape of a trapezoid, with stainless-steel backslashes under a dropped ceiling the color of French lavender. Black granite counters wide enough for rolling our pastry dough and a bar designed to accommodate cooking students are arranged at the edges, along with appliances."

Bare Essentials / Inform Award - 2007

When the Ontario Apartment Building was constructed in 1906, its builders surely meant for its elaborate Beaux-Arts façades and stairways to evoke an air of drama. A century later, however, much of the building had become dark and disorienting. In this apartment conversion, the architect created a spare, modern space through the generous use of glass and translucent panels.

Not all is light and white, however; as a contrast, the bedroom and study feature dark stained-oak flooring. “It’s sophisticated - very restrained and mature,” the jury said. “It’s just a beautiful composition. Everything is so purposeful.”

Grand Award Winner / Residential Architect

Ontario 301 Washington, D.C.

Before it was a dark, disorienting apartment in a Beaux-Arts building. Now the new living spaces are strikingly clear-minded, thanks to a linear floor plan and a reductive palette of white walls, aluminum accents, stainless steel countertops, translucent-glass room dividers, limestone floors, and wenge paneling and cabinetry. The jury applauded the consistent, comprehensive interior. “The details are elegant, and a common thread runs through them,” said one judge. “It's integrated perfectly.”

It didn't take the client couple long to realize that its closed-in rooms and dim hallways would have to go. They wanted to create more efficient spaces and take better advantage of abundant natural light while preserving the integrity of the historic building.

The designers planned a new layout that would encompass two offices, a principal bedroom and a guest room, an additional bathroom and a professional-grade kitchen. Added Dimensions started by tearing out the walls--a move that revealed a welcome surprise...

Eight months and $380,000 later, this Ranchburger has ascended to filet-mignon status inside and out, owing to a 50-foot-wide wall of translucent fiberglass set in a metal grid across the top front of the building. By day it resembles an enormous shoji screen; by night, lit from within, it glows like a Japanese lantern.

A Secret Garden (Crescent Res) / Inform Award 2004

For this backyard space, the initial objectives were rather utilitarian — hiding service wires and replacing a rickety fence. However, the site inspired ColePrevost to create a reflective bamboo garden, which effectively screens out neighbors while offering a sense of privacy and peace. Near the house, a wall of horizontal acid-etched glass channels is punctuated by narrow viewing slots. The channels are supported on stainless-steel stanchions, which provide a framework for LED "light sticks."

On the back side of the garden, the old fence has become a wall of fiberglass-reinforced concrete, which acts as a screen on which the LED light is projected. The wall is “slatted like a fence,” the jury noted, “and it’s layered up with other materials and light and so forth to be curious about how one can make an edge.”

They call it the big shoji screen in the park. It sits on a leafy lot surrounded by smallish traditional homes of a certain age (around 50) across the street from a pleasant park and a creek that runs down to the Potomac River. The house rises from an original brick foundation, its second story of stucco, steel, and translucent panels peeking through the tops of ancient oak trees...

Simplicity Rules (Crescent Res) / Inform Award - 2002

This renovation project re configures the second floor of a house to create an open tableau in modern materials. After opening the upstairs by exposing the rafters and knocking down dividing walls, the designers inserted a plane of acid-etched glass to separate the bathroom area from the sleeping space. Back-lit glass-reinforced plastic panels provide privacy in the shower area, while other forms of lighting can vary the opacity of the glass plane.

“The quality of light is very seductive. It’s not about views. It’s really about these different light qualities – both during the day and in the evening. It just creates a mood.”
