Rincon Bates House by Studio27

I live in Baltimore, a city defined by row houses, so Studio 27’s row house project in nearby DC is pretty interesting to me. The owners of the Rincon Bates House in Capitol Hill commissioned the K Street-based firm to re-imagine the 104-year-old unit as an eco-friendly dwelling for a single family.

The final design is pretty amazing, retaining the original facade but reworking the rest to be more open, bright, and clean-feeling. The house is warmed by tank-less gas-powered water heaters and features low-flow plumbing fixtures, locally-sourced recycled building materials, and a host of other elements that minimizes its environmental impact.
