Light and Space
Tired of living in a dark and cramped space, a young Bethesda, Md., family commissioned project manager Richard Rossi – of locally based Rill Architects – to reconfigure their split-level 1970s home.
After taking out most of the back of the home, the team made a large glass room with access to a new deck and a screened porch.
With three floor-to-ceiling glass walls, the new dining area provided connectivity and allowed for natural light to penetrate deep into the home.
The team added several deep drawers in the base cabinets, which allows for more flexible storage for everything from dishes to pots and pans.
“The home’s before-and-after transformation took it from a 1970s split-level and turned it into something light and bright that suited their young family,” said Rossi. “That was the most exciting part.”
