NaCl House by David Jameson Architect

The Bethesda, Maryland NaCl House has a Tetris-like white exterior that resembles a natural formation of mineral rock salt, hence its name. You remember the periodic table, right? NaCl is the chemical formula for rock salt. Designed by David Jameson Architect Inc., the house isn’t your typically laid out home that’s horizontally stacked.

The white exterior contrasts nicely with the natural landscape that surrounds the home.

The interior features white walls and light wood floors, along with a mostly neutral color palette for the furnishings. The double-height ceiling in the central living room creates an open and airy vibe. Large windows throughout frame the views of the home’s half-acre site.
