Grand Award: Whole-House Remodeling: A Modern Classic

The front porch is an enduring icon of the American Craftsman style, but the porch on this 1920s bungalow was buried by a dark mass of shingles encasing a sculpture gallery when its owners bought it in 1994.

Located in an early 20th century neighborhood of Washington, D.C., this remodeled bungalow celebrates its front porch and Craftsman style, even while accommodating a porch addition.

Before. The owners called their existing home "the bunker."

A two-story rear addition conforms to the bungalow style yet accommodates a large family room and a master bedroom above it.

The kitchen opens to the breakfast room and features red oak flooring, quarter-sawn oak cabinets, and honed granite counters.

Coffered ceilings and built-in cabinetry contribute to what the judges called the "highest-quality craftsmanship," "excellent use of materials," and "cohesive millwork."
