Kalorama District Brick Georgian Revival Renovated by Donald Lococo Architects

Kalorama District, Washington, D.C., United States

Winner of the 2017 John Russell Pope Award for Renovation/Addition Under 5,000 Square Feet, this elegant brick Georgian Revival was exceptionally renovated and expanded by Washington, D.C. based firm Donald Lococo Architects. The firm expanded the footprint to 4,900 square feet with the addition of a fabulous conservatory while showcasing Flemish bond brick pattern. The renovation was approved by the Historic board. Donald Lococo Architects revealed, “In the historic Kalorama district, three disjointed additions are replaced with a single city house design that expands eating spaces and refines circulation while also meeting other basic programmatic needs such as storage spaces and powder rooms. At the completion of the city house project, the final city home is a straightforward composition that preserves the three-bay existing order side to side while delineating original architecture from an addition front to back. A metal and wood conservatory, sympathetic to the homes of its era, is added as a contrasting but complementary form that defines the original house from the addition.”
