Green thinking. Even though this new construction was designed to fit within the architectural aesthetic of the surrounding area, we were able to create new green sustainable opportunities in the form of a green roof that acted as the backyard.
Capitol Hill has a rich fabric of apartment buildings mixed in with single family rowhouses. This 5 story, 66,500 SF, 62-unit condominium incorporates motifs found in the historic neighborhood in a contemporary aesthetic. Metal paneled oriel bays pull the façade out along the street line and decorative metal railings at balconies create a transparent plane in front. A lush landscaped rear yard covers the below grade parking. The interiors use traditional finishes such as wood casing at all doors and windows and crown molding at the ceilings to blend with the modern open plan of the apartment, producing a feeling of charm and comfort.
