Update on Our Pine Spring Project
Here’s a quick update with images of the project in Pine Spring I am developing on with architect Michael Cook of Cook Architecture and developer Steve Wheeler of Solid Constructs. Work on the outside of the house has been mostly wrapped up and the crew has been focusing on the interior space. The original 3 bed/1 bath ranch was 1,066 square feet and completely renovated. We have added around another 1,200 square feet. The finished house will have 4 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms with nearly 2,300 square feet on one level.
Below is a shot focusing on the new addition with living room in front and cantilevered master suite at the back. Wood siding is cedar; the grey siding is HardiePlank cement board.
A view of the master suite from the back with strategically placed window for privacy.
Here’s a close up of the cantilevered bedroom addition.
Below is the added living room space. Floors throughout the house are 1′ by 6′ select white oak. The beams are wrapped in top-quality ash.
This view looks from the dining room past the kitchen island into the living room.
The back wall of the master suite has a wall of custom closets made of ash.
Pine Spring is a mid-century modern community in Falls Church developed by the Luria Bothers and designed by a group of D.C.’s leading modernist architects: Arthur Keyes, Chloethiel Woodard Smith, Nicholas Satterlee and Donald Lethbridge. The neighborhood was noted in the 1965, “A Guide to the Architecture of Washington, D.C,” which was edited by Hugh Newell Jacobsen.
More pictures and details to come in the next few weeks. Please contact me with any questions or interest.
