Located in Cabin John, Maryland, this 4,900-square-foot house cuts a striking figure across its sleepy wooded surroundings, looking over the edge of steep slope, adjacent to the C&O Canal and the Potomac River. Designed by Robert M. Gurney Architects, the home features a light-filled double height circulation axis that separates the house’s main volumes, while traverse axis further organize the spaces. Glass and steel bridges connect the spaces to the second level, and large expanses of glass look out towards the river, while the interior is kept warm through the consistent use of ash wooden paneling.
