Foggy Bottom Residence

This 900 square foot historic row house in Foggy Bottom is intended to be a "boutique hotel away from home" for the Atlantic-hopping client and his family. Since the house is only 11' wide the over-riding goal was to maximize open space and create built-in storage and furniture, using the floor area as efficiently as possible. The main floor is completely open between front and rear in an effort to visually expand the space from interior to garden. The two long walls define the space. On the right a "warm" wall of wood which houses storage needs (including a built-in desk) accentuates the main sitting area, with the wood flooring sliding up the wall and across the ceiling. The opposite "cool" wall is defined by porcelain "steel" textured tiles around the fireplace, black and stainless steel stair and railings, and plate steel cladding around the powder room (including a custom steel door that disappears into the wall). The kitchen on this side also boasts stainless steel and high gloss laminate finishes. The main floor is covered in a blood-wood flooring which creates a rich backdrop against the dark steel and light ash cabinetry. The rear ipe deck, stained to match the blood-wood, steps down onto a simple red brick patio lined with white Mexican river stones.

The upper level is more subdued and tranquil. Warm maple flooring replaces the blood-wood, which emerges only in the finish of the custom master bed (an echo of the finish on the floor below). Two bedrooms and a high-end bathroom with a shower TV, 24" radius "rain" showerhead, and skylight complete the second floor.

Question on the metal walls - I love the metal walls! We have a design in which we are considering them to help gain the extra 4 inches os so for a thinner depth. Two questions - how did you install and is there a problem with "bathroom noise"?

the steel is simply thin sheets of rolled steel glued to 1/2" plywood...attached to 2x4 framing...so not really a space saver....pretty much the same thickness as a typcial wall...so no bathroom noise ...plus there is a fan in ceiling.....cheers - rich

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Mitchell Parker added this to Design Lessons From a 10-Foot-Wide Row House
Smartly hide everything. Loosle pulled everything off the back wall and installed a folding NanaWall to connect the space to the back patio and bring natural light in.The kitchen sink, cooktop, oven and microwave are all on one side of the house. Two rows of cabinets above provide a decent amount of storage. The fridge, a pullout pantry and a horizontal piece of butcher block that acts as additional counter space forms the opposite side. The homeowners can pull the steel table out for dining, move it into the living room or use it as extra desk space. There’s also a wine cooler and a sound system that pipes music into the whole house. “There’s a lot of high-end stuff packed in here and nicely hidden,” Loosle says. To get natural light into the steel-covered powder room, at left in this photo, Loosle let the stairs form a portion of the ceiling, with frosted glass to bring light in from the front windows. Sink: Catelano; kitchen: New York Loft
