Hampden Lane House by Robert Gurney Architects
The Hampden Lane House was designed by Robert Gurney Architect and is located in Bethesda, Maryland, USA. The client wanted his home to be energy efficient as well as to occupy a small part of the property. For this reason, the building was designed as a cube, having 2,200 sq ft of fully utilized spaces. Its flat roof provides an additional 1,100 sq ft of outdoor living space with views of treetops and the downtown Bethesda skyline.
From the architects: “This house represents a deliberate departure in both the thought process and the realization of current building trends in the neighborhood. Instead of building a large house with pretentious ties to the rural past, this new house is smaller with a stronger relationship to the modern, urban area that Bethesda has become. The house is intended to be more site sensitive, environmentally conscious, and to provide comfortable, efficient living spaces.”
