Text description provided by the architects. Graticule House is located in Great Falls, Virginia.  Immersed within its forested site, the home's stark white color stands out against the natural  browns and greens that surround it.  Designed by David Jameson Architect, interior spaces merge into exterior spaces creating a unique dialogue with the home and its site.

Situated on a hillside site, the Graticule House is conceived to be a trace, or reference datum, allowing a reading of the relationship between the building and nature.

Fundamental to the conception of the house is the notion of cadence, where repetitious vertical and horizontal markers of the building’s tectonics are juxtaposed with the particularity of the forest and ground plane. Light and space are modulated by meshing ribbons of glass and wall planes that form a tessellation of solid and void.
