From the architect. The Salop/Gelman residence is a new home on a lot overlooking the Potomac River above a large spillway with a placid manmade lake to one side and the harsh rippling rapids to the other. The essential design parti was a garden path that literally bifurcated the home creating an endless path outward to experience the parted waters as the main entry. Nature as front door was the key.

To one side is a large living, dining, kitchen and master bedroom suites. The path to the other side continues down through a long tunnel through media room to the other side containing 3 more bedrooms and an office. The entire house is also a reflection of silver clouds and rolling hills.

The large roof canopy is a direct function of full winter passive solar gain and full summer shading. Functional green design is celebrated by the metaphors of waters and nature in view. It is highly insulated, passively heated and cooled, as well as equipped with a solar domestic hot water system. The entire skin uses low embodied energy with brushed aluminum, indigenous stone and glass. The interior is all select cut lumber and engineered wood.

All this glazing in Bethesda?? I understand the overhangs but is there any way they deal with the serious amount of heat loss during the winter?
