MMD designed the 20,000 sq. ft. Washington, D.C. home of a high profile media executive. The design accommodates the owner’s extensive international art glass collection in concert with the expansive views of Rock Creek Park. Spaces with ample wall service and muted colors were critical to allow the colorful collection to have a voice of its own. The challenge was to design a home that functions as both a venue for corporate events and a private residence. Such contrasting uses were critical concept considerations in the design layout, separating the public-function areas from the private quarters. The house is separated into two wings; the western section of the home accommodates the children’s bedrooms and family room.
The eastern part of the home contains the two-story living-dining space, kitchen, home office, and a master bedroom suite. The breezeway in between the two wings provides expansive views from the rear terrace out to Rock Creek Park. At street level, the entry for both the garage and foyer are centrally located. The ground level consists of a multi-car parking garage, guest suite, and various support and utility spaces.
