Calem Rubin Residence / Bestheda, Maryland

Originally constructed in 1939, the brick colonial stule house was rebuilt as a composition of modern form and timeless materials.  As a reinvention of the existing massing, linear stucco walls conceptually wrap and protect a stone pavilion inserted within.  This massing reflects the divisions of public and private spaces within the house.  The massive entry door interrupts the facade and open to the gallery and circulation spine.  To the north lies the kitchen is the library, double-height living room and outdoor room.  Taut minimal stairs lead up to a bridge on the second floor which overlooks the living room and culminates at the floating third floor, a device used to bright light deep within the core volume.   (David Jameson Architect Inc.)
