When a young family purchased a 3/4 acre plot near the historic Rosedale Conservancy in Washington DC, they were keen to build a dream home that would reflect the rural history of the site while at the same time being a comfortable modern home within a rectangular duplex structure. With the concept of a “modern barn” finalized, architects at Kube Architecture created the 6,000 square feet Rosedale Residence as a fitting tribute to the conservative rural spaces within a contemporary structure and comfortable decor. Let’s take the tour!
The design team has chosen a predominantly country look for the side of the house overlooking the beautiful lawn, with wooden panels making up most of the walls. Combined with large glass windows, the effect is trendily rustic.
The requirement of a rectangular duplex has been beautifully incorporated in a modern rustic facade. On this side of the house, the ground floor has a rural touch with wood-paneled walls while the upper floor is a contemporary solid white surmounted by an elegant gable roof.
Here is another side of the house, with a strong emphasis on modern white and large glass windows and doors, balanced by wooden panels.
