In the Round

Architect Wayne Good was asked to overhaul a 1930s Cape Cod on Round Bay near Annapolis. “The existing house put all its energy into fronting the street,” says Good. “It’s a spectacular site, so we opened it out in back.” Good raised the roof to move the master bedroom upstairs, adding a private balcony with a round, overscaled window that he “designed as a strong presence to stand up to the greater riverscape,” he explains. Only the bottom two window openings are glassed in to meet safety codes; the glassed sections create passive solar gain, allowing the owners to enjoy the space well into fall.
