Former “Judging New Buildings” Featured in Washington Post Magazine

We judged this building back in May when my old camera was a bit messed up. I took a better picture this weekend. And there is tons of cool info and photos of this home in the Washington Post Magazine’s Home & Design Issue.

From the article:

“Just before dusk on a sharp bend in Florida Avenue NW, a very pregnant Alice Speck smashed a bottle of champagne across the prow of her new house. Husband Jeff Speck, who designed the startling triangular dwelling, stood close enough to revel in the fizz. After two years of dreaming, sleuthing and coaxing to acquire a tiny flatiron plot at 10th Street, and 15 months of exacting construction to build on it, the couple was finally able to call their brick-and-glass aerie home.”
