Project Description

2009 RADA

Architectural Interiors / Merit

According to Stephen Muse, FAIA, the biggest challenge to designing a large house lies in balancing variety and consistency. “The idea is to make the spaces similar enough to hold together but different enough that you have reason to move from room to room,” he says. For this residence in Howard County, Md., he and his staff devised historically appropriate trim and millwork profiles that accomplish both goals and also match the rooms' oversized scale.

“Masterfully done,” noted a judge. “It's classic and restrained—a beautifully crafted, well-proportioned interior.”
