Falls Church, Virginia
2021 Regional CotY Award Winner, Commercial Interior
The client needed a facility to test, display and demonstrate smart home security, home automation, video, energy management, and wellness solutions. The building was originally a one story house built in the 1920s that had been awkwardly expanded in 1984 and converted into unappealing office spaces. While it needed to meet commercial code, the building was required to feel like a home. We opened up the interior and reoriented the building toward the more prominent street with a new entrance, covered porch and patio. The modern, open space now has the flexibility to accommodate large events or intimate tours.
