Located in Bethesda, Maryland, USA, this luxury house is shaped largely by the site constraints of a brook and trees.
With a large glass pavilion made a part of Glenbrook Residence, David Jameson Architects find a splendid way to invite the green outside into this family home.
Two stone structures surround a glass pavilion within a wooded landscape in Bethesda, Maryland. With this home, Jameson wanted to create three distinct structures: one for the “public” (entry space, garage and guest rooms), one for the most “private,” and one where the two can coexist. This can be seen from the two massive stone structures surrounding a glass and wood pavilion.
Each space has an outdoor terrace or some special connection to the site while the roof of the glass pavilion folds beyond one’s cone of vision to create the feeling of being outside. The building is made of all natural materials with a 100-year lifespan and features an underground spring-fed water furnace HVAC system.
