Insurance Restoration GOLD DONALD LOCOCO ARCHITECTS Washington, D.C. lococoarchitecture.com Project name: Trial by Fire Project location: Washington, D.C. Project cost: $210,000 A house fire led to the project, which ne- cessitated extensive work on many dif- ferent areas of the home. Reconfiguring the living spaces with the most damage, such as the foyer, became the first priority. e width of the kitchen posed a prob- lem from a design perspective because the family needed counter area to cook and entertain, but a traditional island was much too big for the space. To create more counter area in the 6-foot-wide galley kitchen, a light and unconventional solution uses compo- nents of two shelving units to blend their chrome finishes with the surface of the surrounding countertop. Changing the layout of the second floor enables an ad- equate master bedroom, and an addition to the left side of the house includes an ancillary entrance and family room.
