The Capitol Hill House uses a range of materials to achieve its desired effect. Concrete, metal and wood are all staples of this architectural structure, and the result is a design that looks both chic and modern.

The owners of the house wanted the kitchen to be a central point, considering one family member is an avid chef. As such, the kitchen has an open atmosphere and communal vibe, so both guests and family can enjoy conversing while someone is cooking away. Since concrete, metal and wood are the main materials used, the entire house has a very industrial aesthetic. Moreover, the high ceilings make the structure look more like a loft than an actual house.
