This Capitol Hill DC townhouse was only two stories. We added a third story on the front and a two level addition at the rear. Work also included remodeling the home's existing interior.
The home is located in a historic district, so special attention had to be given to maintaing the historic feel while updating the interior. The rear of the house makes use of large windows to connect the house with the backyard and make the rooms feel more open.
The homeowners wanted a generous library space to house their extensive book collection. These wood cabinets with an abundance of light fit within the open aesthetic of the rest of the house.
