Unique Spaces: Sears Bungalow Gets a Modern Makeover in Berkley


Husband-wife architects Theodore Adamstein and Olivia Demetriou are the principals at Adamstein & Demetriou, the architecture firm whose modern designs can be seen in DC’s hippest restaurants, including Zaytinya, Poste, and Bistro Bis. It would stand to reason, then, that they live in a similarly appointed home. And they do, but its vast open areas, clad in three levels of soaring glass, are nearly invisible from the street. Passersby in the couple’s Berkley neighborhood instead see a lovingly restored, circa-1923 Sears-kit bungalow. The new-old design of the house fits well into the neighborhood, which is known for its diverse architecture, Adamstein says. Another terrific home designed and built in the OPaL manor.
