AIA Potomac Valley | Citation Award
Our POLITICS AND PROSE project recently won a Citation Award for the new storefront expansion and staff office space. T he jury loved the attention to detail and the preservation of existing texture and materials. They heralded the project as a great community asset and example of adaptive reuse.

AIA Potomac Valley | Merit Award
CHAIN BRIDGE HOUSE is along the Potomac River, and was designed for an international couple. Working with the clients, one with Moroccan and European heritage, we designed an enclosed interior courtyard as the core of the house. The middle transparent core is flanked on either side by two robust insulated concrete wings, clad in white stucco.

HOUSE IN KENWOOD was recognized as "Best in Show" for Residential Design. The Project includes a master suite addition and renovation of an existing Hugh Newell Jacobsen home. The Jury noted that Kenwood was " a thoughtful and well done project. The architect respected what was special about the original architect's work, and then made it better."

GRAND RE-OPENING: The Writer's Center

In his youth, Mark spent much of his free time at the Bethesda Youth Center, located just off Wisconsin Avenue in downtown Bethesda. The venue provided the local teenage community with classes, dances, and other social activities. But the center closed in 1970, and the building spiraled downward over the years, uncared for and poorly maintained. 

Fast forward to the present day, and this mid-century modern building is now the home of
 THE WRITER'S CENTER . The non-profit community-centered organization is dedicated to the creation of an independent home for the literary arts, nurturing writing talent and celebrating writers through classes, lectures, workshops, publications, and readings.

A few years ago we updated the lower level and last week they re-opened with a front facelift, incorporating new ADA upgrades and new staff offices.
