Barcode House by David Jameson Architect

Recently David Jameson Architect finished Barcode House design in Washington, D.C. This unique house explores justapositions between the heavy and light, the old and the new. The name of this residence represents unique and interesting exterior design detail which consists of a series of horizontal lines that mimics giant barcode when you see it from outside. The work is done by positioning the project’s diverse pressures into a unique situational aesthetic. The existing fragile wall structure of this row house is governed that the addition be engineered as a freestanding structure. Site constraints dictated a vertically oriented spatial solution.

The owner’s vision is to have transparent living space, thus generates the opportunity to create an integrated solution for creative force requirements. Structural steel rods within a glass window wall are aligned with datum lines of the neighboring building elevations. A stucco circulation tower anchors the living space to the existing row house. The result is a unique and modern architecture building, Barcode House.
