Light fixtures, landscape illumination
Review Type
Permit - revised design


The Commission regrets that pole-mounted gas fixtures and landscape illumination were installed prior to review or permit. No objection to issuance of permit for proposed wall-mounted light fixtures no taller than 22-inches high at either side of entry door as shown in supplemental information dated 4 June 2009. Recommend AGAINST issuance of permit for existing landscape illumination which is excessive and out of character to the historic building and the district. No objection to step lights and up-lights to ONLY one tree to either side of stairs behind the garden fence, and to sculpture and path lighting on side yard as shown in red-lined supplemental drawings dated 20 May 2009 PROVIDED no light source is visible. Pole-mounted gas lanterns and additional landscape light fixtures, which were not approved and were deleted from this permit application, must be removed no later than 31 August 2009. Note: Any subsequent modifications to the exterior design made during DCRA technical review must be re-submitted to the Commission for approval prior to issuance of permit.
