Burley Street Residence Addition & Renovation, Berlin, MD 2008

This addition to an existing bungalow is designed for maximum energy efficiency through passive-solar design and high-efficiency mechanical systems. It blends with the dominant traditional style of the neighborhood while providing dynamic interior spaces and a strong connection to the outdoors.

The sharp angle aligns the back wall to a true-South orientation, allowing excellent passive-solar control.

"I told him we had a wish list of things we wanted to accomplish, and he took the wish list and said 'we can to this'. I didn't get 'we can't do any of this' like the other architects" Burley St. Owners
