New York based BFDO Architects completed Deep Point Road House, a renovation and extension of a 1950s ranch located in Montross, Virginia, USA.

According to the architects, the updated house needed to take advantage of its beautiful surroundings, defined mainly by 2 converging creeks. The owners wanted to enlarge the house while capitalizing on the sweeping vistas and light that is reflected off the water.

A den extension was added to the north side of the house, in order to capture views and counterbalance the original, south-facing volume of the site. The social core of the house is the living room, which is “wrapped” in floor-to-ceiling windows.

“The open plan of the kitchen, living and dining rooms is punctuated by a 2-sided fireplace, which separates dining and living areas,” the architects explained. “Skylights on either side allow light to bounce off the surface of the chimney volume. The L-shaped kitchen has a 12-foot-long island, topped in Namibian white marble.”

The master bedrooms are linked to scenic wooden decks. A stairway leads the way up to the rooftop garden, where lounge furniture and planted rows of herbs make for a relaxing refuge. Information provided by BFDO Architects; photography courtesy of Francis Dzikowski/OTTO.
