The Hoodem residence is proof positive that much can be done in a small space. This project was designed through the collaborative effort of David & Blake Dunlevy. The initial vision presented by the customer was that of a caribbean style resort set in the context of Northwest Washington, DC. A quick look through the gallery will make the challenges faced during construction obvious. Constructing a pool, outdoor kitchen, flagstone patio, and installing mature plantings in a space that is no wider than 25 feet proved to be similar to building a ship in a bottle.
In the end we were able to bring a taste of St. Lucia to Washington, DC.
