Lake Barcroft Residence

Falls Church, VA

A builder-quality interior becomes a modern sanctuary for the owners, as FORMA opens up the plan and re-directs the flow of the house to some amazing results. The lower level unused space becomes a mini-theater /party room while a series of outdoor decks looking over the creek in the back makes for a sublime getaway in the spring and fall.

Client Testimonial

"We purchased this traditional colonial in 2001 for its scenic, private grounds and location. However, I always wanted a contemporary style home with clean lines and lots of open space and windows, and a big kitchen to entertain. The house was about 7000 square feet, but it was lacking the openness I desired due to multiple small rooms and many walls. That is when I turned to Forma Design. They reconfigured the space and worked within the existing footprint of the house in order to create this openness. The end result was absolutely breathtaking! I now love and enjoy every corner of my house, and, when I have parties and have friends over, they all love it as well. You would not believe the number of compliments I get from everyone who come to the house. I am extremely pleased with the work done and I highly recommend FORMA Design.-:)"
