Haffner Residence, Rockville, Maryland


My work on this project spanned almost ten years and included two new additions totaling about 1,000 sf and interior renovations of the existing house. The first addition is a series of cascading, triangular planters that descend from a high-volume living space, connected to and extending from the street-side of the house. This work changed the architecture of the existing American Rambler-style home to something not seen before in this neighborhood. The second addition is a new bathroom within a visually de-constructed cube, set away from the existing building and connected to the master bedroom by an enclosed bridge. This small addition is in itself an abstract sculpture set within a garden.
