Alexandria Modern Renovation

Alexandria, VA

Linear, locally-sourced stone walls and geometry pulled from the architecture fuse the existing cottage and modern, expansive addition. Specimen trees were carefully preserved and relocated; their graceful branches cascade down the walls and anchor garden views from the open interior. Permeable reinforced grass paving at the driveway collects and filters site water.
