Custom Magic

Architect James McDonald conceives a custom home in bold, contemporary style

James McDonald Associate Architects, PC

Principal James McDonald of James McDonald Associate Architects, PC, designed a custom home in Bethesda to reflect his clients’ desire for a contemporary space that would mirror the clean lines they prefer, with strong accents of stone. “The goal was to provide a dynamic front façade with glass expanses while maintaining privacy,” explains McDonald. “We also opened up the home’s back and sides to the rear pool and gardens.”

While the exterior is dominated by detailed stone walls and planes, the interiors are an interplay of clean forms and glass. Light-filled, livable spaces include a covered porch that doubles as a home office—a perfect spot from which the homeowners can enjoy their lush surroundings.
