Al Hende Accessory Dwelling

Location: Arlington, VA (Unrealized project)

A 2000 Sq.Ft. accessory dwelling located on a steep site located on the clients residential lot. With the site restrictions and design parameter in mind the dwelling was split into 3 floors serving different needs and purposes. The dwelling is divided into three main areas which are; entry and guest area, family area, and private area. The design focus here was to provide maximum privacy while providing a well lit open space. This was achieved by providing floor to ceiling bi-fold doors to create balconies on each floor. To add privacy between the first and second floor, a fully automated shading system was designed to allow sun and air through while providing visual privacy.
