This guest house/garage and out door fireplace for a Northwest Washington, DC home were designed to create an outdoor room from the existing rear yard and pool. Completed while I was with Gilday Renovations, the changes in grade provided an additional challenge to mediate between the various functions required. The pedimented porch creates a focal point for the pool terrace, allowing the more functional elements of the building to blend into the background.
