Residential Pattern Book and Art Deco Streamline Moderne Building Survey
The City hired a consultant to create a user-friendly, non-binding, residential architectural pattern book for the Del Ray neighborhood (including the Town of Potomac Historic District - a National Register of Historic Places district since 1992 with no local regulatory design review). The goal of the pattern book is to help those involved in construction to relate their projects to identified historic neighborhood patterns and styles. The pattern book describes typical and distinctive features of the overall neighborhood, as well as representative examples of individual properties, and suggests prototypical compatible architectural solutions for rehabilitation and additions, as well as infill for new construction. The second part of the study was a survey of the Art Deco and Streamline Moderne buildings in the neighborhood. More information can be found by visiting the links below.
