4917 New Kent Road / by Modern Richmond

Our November exchange is around the corner. And it's an excellent example of modern architecture in Richmond. But what does it all mean. 

More about the event:

This fantastic home was built in 1989. Designed by the architect for his parents on a sloping site considered unbuildable. “The beautiful old bridges spanning the James River served as inspiration for building over, rather than on, the fragile landscape.” – Douglas Rixey. The 19’ x 95’ house is oriented to the morning and afternoon sun with each room having views to both and exposure to the changing light of the day. Burt and Mark are the third owners of the house.
