Project Description

2011 RADA
Restoration/Preservation / Merit

Painstaking surgery restored this 1959 Frank Lloyd Wright house, poised delicately above the Potomac River rapids. Part of the restoration team, Richard Williams, FAIA, chose serene, understated interior elements that play to Wright’s tune—a new kitchen with concrete counters, Xenon undercabinet lighting in the living room, kitchen, and bedrooms, and vintage furniture. “The new high-end cabinetry and lighting helped bring everything into sharper contrast and focus,” Williams says.

Citing the technical skill evident, a judge noted that “somebody obviously spent a lot of time and money to put it all back together.”
