Modern Style Fulfills the Center-Hall Colonial in Washington D.C.
It was a case of unusual bedfellows: an Italian couple based in Washington D.C. approached regional architecture company Fowlkes Studio with a 1980s brick Colonial and an excellent collection of pedigreed European modernist furnishings. How to integrate the 2 into a household home?
Fowlkes, which is run by husband-and-wife group, VW and Catherine Fowlkes (they studied architecture individually– he at Harvard, she at MIT– while cohabiting), increased to the difficulty by deftly simplifying both outside and interior. Out went the window shutters and the center hall. In came the Poul Henningsen front door light, the Finn Juhl sideboard, and comprehensive customized kitchen cabinetry that in numerous essential areas likewise functions as partitions.
It’s a transformation that changed your home from the kid next door to worldwide sophisticate. Let’s take a trip.
