"Interiors are minimally detailed. Finishes include honed and chiseled Pompeii stone, ash flooring, walnut millwork and white marble countertops. The interior is designed to allow views toward the woods and river to provide the primary visual experience."
Baron Gurney complemented the architecture with clean-lined furniture in flexible, carefully conceived arrangements. In the great room, the clients can comfortably lounge on the sectional near the TV when they’re home alone, but the adjacent sofa and swivel chairs accommodate guests when they entertain.Read More
“Using this kind of attention to detail totally changes your lifestyle,” says Gurney, who employed the app to find a “happy, fun and sunny” apple green accent color for a “funky” modular home designed for Bethesda clients by her husband, architect Robert Gurney. “It’s not only a modern home — it’s a modern way of living.”
Washington, DC-based architect Robert Gurney and interior designer Therese Baron Gurney, a husband-and-wife team, led to the design of a three-volume, 5,500-square-foot structure. The center volume houses an entrance hall and second-floor guest suites. It’s flanked on one side by the one-story main residence and on the other by a low-slung garage. Built at differing heights, the three wings appear to be separate but are actually joined by glass-enclosed connectors.
Members of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) Washington Metro Chapter gathered at the Washington Design Center on September 24 for their annual awards celebration. ASID members from other chapters and Home & Design staff judged the competition, and photos of the award-winning projects are shown.
