Located in the Cleveland Park Historic District, the Slayton House was designed by I. M. Pei and built in 1960 and is listed in the District of Columbia Inventory of Historic Places and the National Register of Historic Places. The previous homeowner had undertaken renovations by Hugh Newell Jacobsen in the early 2000s. The current homeowners purchased the home in the summer of 2009, and Maurice Walters Architect, Inc. led the recent renovations. Maurice Walters met with staff members of the District of Columbia Historic Preservation Office during the design process to apprise them of the efforts and gain feedback in advance of building permit sign-off. All renovations were modeled using Revit software, with many three-dimensional representations of details to increase understanding of the impact on the existing historical structure.
