Business Description
Inspired by a shared interest in sustainable design and artfully crafted buildings, we established Gardner Mohr Architects in 2003. We bring to our practice a detail-oriented approach to building design, developed over two decades of professional practice working on a range of projects from large scale commercial and institutional buildings to private homes in Washington DC and the surrounding region.

The focus of our practice is residential architecture. Whether a project involves a renovation, an addition to an existing building or new construction, we offer full service architectural design services at a highly personalized level. Our clients are central to the design process and we keep them continuously involved. Our approach is to foster a team approach in which all team members — architect, engineers, contractor and owner, — are present from the beginning in order to make critical decisions about materials, systems, and building technologies which form the basis for the design. We believe that this approach creates architecture which is integrated, holistic and innovative, while at the same time considerate of its environmental impact.

While our work is unwaveringly devoted to a concern for space, light, order, and craft, it is most importantly guided by our commitment to environmental stewardship through responsible, inventive design and professional leadership. Environmental issues and architecture are intrinsically linked at every level and we believe that, as architects, we are positioned to be leaders in environmental responsibility. For these reasons we have continuously grown our interest and knowledge base in sustainable design. We view a sustainable design approach as not only productive and essential to our profession of designing buildings, but fundamentally important to us as we contemplate what kind of world we will leave to our children.

No, as the picture caption notes, this is not a "two-fer bath"....A small bath seems larger by virtue of fully mirrored end wall.

The island is wider than 3', and we did implement a "sleight of hand" solution in creating the section of the island. I don't have the exact dimensions handy, unfortunately. I do apologize -- detailed kitchen shop drawings are archived.

Thank you for your response. Don't suppose I could buy a copy of those shop drawings to save me hours figuring out that sleight of hand? My email is design@pangaea-id.com if you'd like to email me privately about that. I appreciate that it took your expertise to figure it out in the first place and that it would take up your time to hunt up those drawings. I hope you'll consider it. Thank you!

The green paint is actually back-painted glass. Unfortunately the color (a ben moore color) is in project archive. I'm sorry.
