Bethesda Home RenovationContemporary Landscape, DC Metro

This charming cottage in Bethesda, Maryland was due for an update. The architects came up with a terrific scheme to update the cottage to a more contemporary look, both inside and out.

Molly Scott Exteriors was called in to provide design for the exterior hardscapes and plantings. One major requirement for the young family was regrading the side-yard lawn area to a level space for play. The location is a bit unorthodox, but it's the most open space for the kids to play.

    Hi Sharone, Thanks for your question. That awning/portico was designed by the architect, Jen Harty of HxH Architects. I am pretty sure it was constructed on site and is built specifically for this house, so not really something you could purchase ready-made. The roof is a standing-seam metal. Hope that's helpful! Best, Molly
