Dear Mr. and Mrs. Snowden:

In its meeting of 22 January, the Commission of Fine Arts reviewed the concept design for a new residence at 4613 Colorado Avenue, NW (case number SL 09-010). The Commission members recognized the design challenge presented to this project by the use of modular construction; they approved the concept design with three suggested modifications. First, the stone veneer proposed for the front facade should be omitted and the proposed cementitious siding used in its place, with the stone veneer applied to the foundation wall on all four sides. Second, the size and subdivision of the windows and proportion of the panes should be regularized as much as possible. Third, the face of the garage should be recessed as much as possible from the front facade.

The Commission delegated final review of this project to the staff, which is available to answer any questions and to assist you with your next submission.
