Being a good neighbor, preserving the historic flaair of the neighborhood was a key design parameter, and we worked to ensure that all aspects of the project communicated a property that would complement its location on an active cornor of Capitol Hill. As part of the master plan, this 6-story, 36,000 square-foot office building was fully renovated and returned to its original use as apartments. In addition to providing 30 apartments for intern and graduate fellows, the building will accommodate three new restaurants at the ground and lower floors. The historic facade was restored, with the addition of new glass-and-metal decorative canopies. The site was reconfigured to provide a welcoming entrance for the residents as well as outdoor seating terraces for the restaurants.
