This building design is one of the most challenging building types, beautifully arranged on a dense urban site. Spaces, massing, and details show restraint and clarity. Exemplary in every respect.
Situated on historic Georgetown’s main shopping street, this project restores two mid-19th-century commercial/residential buildings and fills the remaining site behind them with additional street-level retail space on the street level. Above this new space and in the upper levels of the historic buildings, six luxury residential units create a little rooftop village floating above the bustle of the city. Location: Washington, D.C. Firm: McInturff Architects.
