Glenbrook Residence, Maryland, David Jameson Architects
Virginia based architects David Jameson are behind the beautiful Glenbrook Residence in Bethesda, Maryland. Designed to be a versatile family home that lives coherently with its surroundings thanks to its use of natural materials, and plentiful glass.
From David Jameson Architects website:
Two stone structures surround a glass pavilion within a wooded landscape in Bethesda, Maryland. The concept for the Glenbrook residence was to create three distinct structures: one for the most public programs (entry space, garage and guest bedrooms), one for the most private living programs and one where “public” and private can co-exist. Each space has an outdoor terrace or some special connection to the site while the roof of the glass pavilion folds beyond one’s cone of vision to create the feeling of being outside. The building is made of all natural materials with a 100-year lifespan and features an underground spring-fed water furnace HVAC system.
The angular walls and roof help to bring the outside in, further linking the home with its surroundings.
