Zang Residence

This house is located in Lyon Village just a block from the bustling Wilson Boulevard corridor in downtown Clarendon. The former modest side-hall Colonial was transformed by a whole-house remodel, pop-top and rear addition. In truth, it is a new home. The few existing walls and spaces kept were totally refinished and rebuilt. The original home occupied a very favorable, but, now restricted position on its lot. In zoning parlance, the only option to maintain that preferred "Grandfathered" house placement, was by “remodeling” the existing structure in lieu of a knock-down and new build.

The home owner's preference for shingle siding gave impetus for the exterior design. The remade house is expressed with simple, crisp, gabled forms wrapped in a taught outer shingle skin, all basic precepts of classic turn of the century “Shingle Style” architecture. On the interior, ground floor living spaces are arranged in "open plan" and defined by furniture groupings. In the family/kitchen area, the ceiling is coffered, and room height increased, to maintain appropriate scale and proportion for expansive interior spaces.

As with all remodels, the merit of any design solution is how successfully it transforms new and old together. In this case, both are seamlessly blended as one unified whole.
