Project name: Rock Creek House
Project location: Washington, DC
Firm name: NADAAA
This project employs a very sophisticated strategy for dealing with messiness by creating an interior environment that allows for some chaos. Technically, this architect is operating at an extremely high level. The lavish execution of details is breathtaking, even fetishistic, though it is difficult to find a rationale behind the overall design, which falls—beautifully—apart.
