Creative Multi-Generational Family Home in Virginia: The Bridge House


architecture modern residence Bridge House by Höweler + Yoon Architecture is an original looking residence in McLean, Virginia, United States. The multi-generational house is located between a forest area and a suburban neighborhood, offering the inhabitants a feel of both lifestyles. The structure of the project consists of 3 volumes, each  interacting with the landscape: “Views from the suburban street through to the sloped landscape are informed by the programmatic volumes of the main floor and the bridge-like volume above, which frame the scene from interior and exterior vantage points. Each tubular volume contains a carefully organized relationship of private and public areas that correspond to the family’s generational structure”, explained the architects.

The larger volume of the ground floor is the collective public area of the multi-generational home, which includes all shared programs, such as the kitchen, family room, dining room and garage. Physically bridging between these 2 spaces is a long volume that houses the family’s second and third generations.” The interior design scheme includes furniture units made from recycled materials, as well as a fireplace and staircase fabricated from hot-rolled steel and wood.
