Project Description

2006 RADA


This upscale condo building in Adams Morgan, a vibrant multicultural neighborhood in northwest Washington, D.C., got the nod from our judges, who admired its human element, the thoughtful use of brick, and the “Florentine palazzo concept.” As with any large building in a dense mixed-use environment, the challenge was to be playful with massing to maintain the scale of the surrounding townhouses and narrow storefronts.

Hickok Cole Architects used a variety of gestures to manipulate the 300-foot-long structure, including interwoven balconies, a façade that steps back and forth, and a glassy four-story volume at the south corner that resembles the prow of a ship. “We held the building three feet off the street because it was so narrow and we asked for additional height to get the density the client wanted,” says project architect Laurence Caudle, RA. Inside, floor-toceiling metal-framed windows, sliding barn-style doors, and transparent room partitions impart the quintessential loft aesthetic that attracts hip urban buyers.
