Harkavy House Residence Guney Architect is the design in 2009 with an area of 2900 square foot single-family homes located in Potomac, Maryland (USA), in one lot wooded acres, adjacent to park lands outside Washington DC. The house is located far from the highway and oriented forest views. Surrounded bytrees and wooded park. This house consists of three volumes articulated roof forms.
The two story volume contains an open living, dining and kitchen space and two small offices on the second floor. The living space is double height, surrounded by views of the natural surrounding and flooded with light. The one story bedroom suite is a more intimate space, but remains light filled and open to the views.
Interior detailing is minimal and crisp throughout. Brazilian cherry flooring and beech millwork combine with black window frames and black ground-faced block. Limestone, teak, stainless steel, natural aluminum and opaque and translucent glass contribute to the palette.
With simple forms rendered in sensory materials, the house becomes a small part of the larger landscape, providing a place to witness trees changing colors, fog rolling in from the not too distant Potomac River and deer herds wandering to the edge of the woods.
