Luxury can take many shapes – in this case, a two-story contemporary residence in Glen Echo, Maryland. Referred to as the Wissioming Residence, this modern collection of volumes was designed by Robert Gurney Architects. Built on the footprint of a pre-existing residential structure, this contemporary villa rests on a densely tree-populated lot with beautiful views of the Potomac River.
With stunning outside features like the swimming pool suspended twenty feet above grade and the fascinating mature trees carefully protected during the design and construction fazes, the Wissioming Residence also displays impressive interiors adorned with terrazzo flooring and exceptional architectural details like the large overhangs on the glazed southern wall. Located just a few miles north-west of Washington DC, the property is a home and an office, responding to the owner’s request. Occupying part of the ground floor of a detached structure separated from the main residence by a reflecting pool, this home office space stands below a garage on the first level and a guest suite above. A real volumetric modern dream home for you to admire – the Wissioming Residence is both kind to the surrounding environment and impressive in modern design.
