Red House Architects’ Bob Braddock is intimately familiar with Arlington houses. “As a residential architect, I am most often called upon to expand and remodel homes for growing families and in doing so, also address the existing shortcomings,” he says.

“As a native northern Virginian, Red House Architects’ Bob Braddock has a particularly deep understanding of what his clients want. “I have over 25 years experience in architecture, and 18 of those are specifically residential architecture in Arlington,” he says. “I can offer a wealth of experience, a knowledge about Arlington homes (both new and existing), and a design process that has been honed and perfected over the years.”


“The typical Arlington house has little rooms, a little kitchen, and all the rooms are separated. It doesn’t fit the lifestyle of today,” says Bob Braddock, founder of Red House Architects and a former in-house ar- chitect for the local builder Mickey Simpson Ltd. “People want things to- day that are open.”
