ARCHITECT JOHN DONKIN
A home that makes you stop and look. With its easy lines and understated modern design is an alluring home. Architect John Donkin worked his magic along with the owners to redo a 1950s home. Turning the house into a statement of simplicity overlooking the water of Patterson Creek in the Glebe. The homes is beautifully simple in design, capturing the light and vistas from most rooms of the home yet providing privacy for the owners.
A zen like rear garden, beautifully landscaped front grounds and a huge terrace off the second floor overlooking the Inlet provides summer havens. The home is full of unique features and design choices that make the house one of a kind.

ARCHITECT JOHN DONKIN TEXT JANINE DEBANN
Donkin began by gutting the interior to the framing and stripping the exterior down to the sheathing. He recomposed the south faCade asymmetrically and used floor-to-ceiling glass instead of punched windows. This created a more dramatic diagonal visual path from the living room across the site. Inside, these new openings organize the living room and a conservatory-like sitting space in the southwest corner. The view now terminates at an elegant row of houses some 200 feet away. In addition, Donkin clarified circulation by boldly relocating the staircase from its position in the southwest corner of the house.
The new open-riser steel stair, pulled inward in plan, now leads to a central point in the upper floor, leaving room for both an office and a master bedroom along the south side. The ground floor still consists of the same living spaces as before, but is now reconfigured as visually interconnected zones linking the street to the rear yard. Donkin’s fascination with continuous spaces is evident in every corner of the house. Rooms do not contain, but rather terminate at distant points, giving the house a scale far greater in perception than in measured reality.
