about the design
This rear addition to a home in Silver Spring MD was designed to house a new kitchen and studio for award winning photographer Muriel Hasbun and her family. The simple “box” slips across the rear of the exisitng house; openings strategically penetrate the box both in the walls as well as ceiling. The kitchen island, which doubles as layout table for the studio, is connected to both spaces by a steel plate in the floor. Interior walls act as gallery for photography works.
