Jacobsen Architecture

JacobsenArchitectureHave always yearned for a house on the beach like this one designed by Jacobsen Architecture, Washington DC. Their design philosophy fits in with our passion for light and location:  “The quality of the light upon that particular area of earth is always unique and determines the path the architecture will take. We endeavor to design buildings that belong, make the site look better and, hopefully, never shout.”
