Originally built in the 1950s, the abandoned garage behind the main house on Gallatin Street was transformed into a 1-bedroom Additional Dwelling Unit.

Before the intervention, the structure consisted of an unfinished wood frame structure. The original foundations, painted cedar shake exterior and concrete floor were reused. Portions of the existing structure remained in good condition which allowed us to reuse the elements to preserve its historical feel.

Who is Ileana Schinder?

I am an architect, I design homes.

My designs bring spaces to life. I add exceptional value to projects through a creative design process, construction ideas and conscious planning.

As a house whisperer of sorts, I have worked on a wide range of building types, from tiny galley kitchens to whole house renovations.

I tailor my services to meet the unique needs of every client to fit their budget and timeline.

I have nurtured my passion for architecture since first hearing the click of LEGO bricks at the age of 4. Two decades later, I graduated with a B.A. in Architecture from Universidad Nacional de Cordoba (Argentina) and an M.A. in Communications from American University in Washington, D.C.

I am licensed to practice architecture in Washington D.C., Virginia and Maryland. I am a LEED accredited professional and a Passive House Design Consultant.

I live in Washington, D.C. with my husband, two children and Cecilia, the dog.
