    Thanks, fixed it!

    Mr. Squeegee Man will be busy with that walkway.

    Kinda reminds me of Falling Water in PA.

  • Reminds me of a rowing (crew) practice building where you row in water tanks.

    Funny, the GPS took us by this when we drove to Frendship Heights from Petworth this weekend. That’s an awesome neighborhood for fans of architecture. I love the house and the others in the neighborhood. Do they ever have neighborhood open houses so the rest of us can drool?

    It reminds me of the panda exhibit at the National Zoo.

    • ah

      Ha! And, like the zoo, no animals!

  • Popupowner

    Looks very Frank inspired… has a lot of potential. BTW, if you do the bethesda neighborhoods there are a lot of flwright inspired houses that are pretty amazing.

    They’ve been building this thing forever. It has to be going over a year now.

  • La Niña

    they are moving the NYC fashion week here for spring/summer 2011 collection and using the bridge as the catwalk – watch them fall off their high heels!

    The exterior treatment of this house looks like vinyl lap siding, but I suppose that couldn’t be.

    These new mega houses appear to build on, and over a tributary of Rock Creek on a fragile-looking slope. There used to be signage near them that read “Sacred Trees”, which quite ironic considering that (parkland?) trees were ripped out of the ground build these resource-hungry monstrosities.

    Is that going to be a moving walkway to carry you and your groceries to the front door?
