Her loom was custom built by John Bettencourt. The size allows her to create a rug up to five feet wide- the length can be as long as she wants. As a one person operation, she makes her rugs alone from start to finish.
The Edgemoor Residence is located in a post-war neighborhood in Bethesda, Maryland, USA. Recently restored and redesigned by , the house displays plenty of contemporary details, without interfering with its exterior traditional look: “The original corner-lot house was torn down to the foundation walls and first floor deck, and rebuilt as a composition of both modern and traditional forms”. The gable roof is said to establish a dialogue with the nearby buildings.
Even though this house was recently built, the designers did their best in respecting the architecture and tradition of the surrounding constructions. Exposed stone formations, white picket fences and exposed timber are of strong visual effect. You are looking at a fresh, simple and beautiful home with charming interior details, perfectly integrated in its environment. Would you “trade” a modern home with contemporary details on a traditional crib such as the one below?
Once inside, spacious interiors, seemingly endless white walls, minimalist furniture arrangements and generously-sized glass piercings set the tone for a modern-style home: “The entry defines a gallery that runs the length of the house, dividing the kitchen-dining room volume from the guest room-family room volume. The entry procession ends at the double-height master suite volume. An animated stairway overlooking the family room leads up to a catwalk between the guest rooms and a bridge to the media room”. How would you comment on the indoor-outdoor relationship of this project?
A home is about the way it makes you feel. It’s about safety, comfort, warmth and a certain type of atmosphere that distresses you and fills you with happiness and unmeasurable joy. We’ve bumped into this project, the Village House located in northern Sjælland, in Denmark.
