Elmhirst Drive House

Falls Church, Virginia


Renovation and addition to a 1,200 sf post-war Minimal Traditional style house in Falls Church. Although originally a simple exterior minimal in trim and ornament, the application of vernacular borrowed from the tradition of the American Bungalow resulted in a transformational renovation for this home. The addition at the front elevation added a Master Bedroom Suite while a smaller addition at the side elevation created an inviting Dining Room. At the interior of the house a renovated and enlarged Kitchen and connected Laundry room created a very efficient, modern core at the center of this otherwise traditional home.
