The White House is the official residence and workplace of the president of the United States.It is located at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW in Washington, D.C., and has been the home of each U.S. president since John Adams in 1800. The term 'White House' is often used as a metonym for the president and his advisers. The home was designed by Irish-born architect James Hoban in the neoclassical style. Hoban modelled the construction on Leinster House in Dublin, a building which houses the Oireachtas, the Irish legislature. Construction took place between 1792 and 1800 using Aquia Creek sandstone painted white. When Thomas Jefferson moved into the home in 1801, he (with architect Benjamin Henry Latrobe) added reduced colonnades on each wing which concealed stables and storage. In 1814, during the War of 1812, the mansion had been set ablaze by the British Army in the Burning of Washington, destroying the interior and charring a lot of the exterior. Reconstruction began almost immediately, and President James Monroe moved into the partially rebuilt Executive Residence in October 1817. Exterior building continued with the inclusion of the semi-circular South portico in 1824 and the North portico in 1829. Because of crowding inside the executive order , President Theodore Roosevelt had work offices relocated to the newly constructed West Wing in 1901. Eight years later in 1909, President William Howard Taft enlarged the West Wing and created the first Oval Office, which was finally moved as the section was expanded.
