Choosing a house design style should be easy, just be sure to consider your home and make it a comfortable and pleasant as possible and enjoy decorating. Talk about house design, have you ever heard Wissioming Residence? Wissioming Residence design was designed by experienced architect Robert M. Gurney, FAIA located in Glen Echo, Maryland, USA is located in a densely wooded land overlooking the Potomac River. Glen Echo is as a rare enclave of modern houses in the suburbs of Washington, DC. The Design House occupies a pre-existing house footprint in an effort to minimize disruptions to the site, no deletion of mature hardwoods in the process. A new swimming pool is suspended twenty feet above the ground to further reduce the impact on the steeply sloping site.
Structural pre-cast concrete planks are used throughout the project in an effort to expedite the construction process, the length of wide open spaces and the opportunity to heat the house hydronically. Combined with a 5 “concrete slab and soil, the structural system provides heating additional liability. Large overhangs on the south wall glass and tree cover to minimize solar gain in summer.
Wood siding is combined with Soft-coated stainless steel gray and dull black steel window frames to provide a range of external material that fits comfortably in the landscape. Bluestone, gravel and water to complete the palette. Interior materials such as white terrazzo floor, oak cabinets and white aluminum compliment the light and little space detailed. The creation of this atmosphere refocuses his attention outward, allowing the owner to reconnect with the picturesque site in itself is preserved through the house design.
