A Modern Renovation of a Capitol Hill Townhouse

A Modern Renovation of a Capitol Hill Townhouse

Situated in the largest historic residential neighborhood in Washington DC, this townhome in Capitol Hill was originally built in 1906. In January of this year, a renovation designed by architects at Studio 27 gave the century-old cramped rooms and dimly lit interior a new life while retaining the facade of the original structure.

Studio 27 really opened up the interior with skylights in a central light shaft (there's even a bridge walkway) and rear windows overlooking the patio and backyard.
