Imagining What New Buildings Could Look Like – 3600 Block of Rock Creek Church Rd, NW

Last week we looked at a controversial (see photo below) new row house going up near the Petworth metro. You can see the variety of opinions here. Of course we’ll revisit when the entire project is completed.

But I thought I’d share the thoughts and sketch (above) sent in by David B.

“A few ideas on how to place nice with your neighbors:

-Set back the top floor to maintain consistent roofline along the street.
-Reduce the depth of the entry niche on the left side to allow for
more daylight and recover additional area lost due to third floor
-Larger windows
-I assume this is already the case, but add wood trellis at first floor.
-Different material at cellar floor to better define the base.”
