Source Connection News Papers

When a Bethesda, Md., family decided to update and expand their vacation home on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay, functionality and style were top priorities.

Doug Roberts and Jessica Parker Wachtel of GTM Architects in Bethesda added more than 1,400 square feet, but kept many of the existing features of the 3,792-square-foot beach house, which was built in 1985.

“What was unique about this project is that the family’s father had originally designed this home himself,” said Roberts. “It’s modern with lots of glass and cathedral ceilings. The family didn’t want to change that. They just wanted to expand it.”
