Homeowner and designer Connie Krupin fell in love with the neighborhood and potential of her Washington row house. She wanted to change the exterior to better fit the neighborhood and modernize the interior. She also wanted to use her design skills to create the couple's dream home.
Krupin’s design reconfigured the floor plan to better suit the couple’s needs. The main floor is more geared toward entertaining and the third floor studio was turned into a master suite. The exterior received new windows and ironwork to better fit the historic neighborhood. The patio and back decks were refinished. The interior feels modern with unique architectural and design elements in each room. Another highlight is the great room, which features lots of windows and exposed ceiling beams.
