A Mediterranean Villa in DC

The existing house enjoyed a large site challenged by a 16 foot vertical drop to the rear yard. The addition addressed the yard's challenges and assets in the following ways:

-The new upper terrace offers needed, useable outdoor entertaining space of the main living area with expansive views overlooking the yard.
-The covered loggia below the terrace offers a compelling destination at the lower level.
-We sited the pool close the new loggia which adds to it's function and appeal.
-The lower grade solutions around the pool include a raised terrace at one end to avoid underpinning the old house. This also creates a diving platform and allows space for fountain jets for the pool.

The addition's program adds a family room off the kitchen and the raised terrace at the upper level, a mudroom and back door at a mid level below this and a guest suite, pool bath, wine cellar, walk-out exercise room, covered loggia, outdoor BBQ and pool at the lower level.
