1201 Perry St NE, Washington DC

This 8,700 SF, 7 unit, co-living apartment building is situated on the corner of Perry St. and 12th St. NE. The 3 story plus cellar and penthouse boasts a playful rhythm on both street-facing facades with the push and pull of the building. Light, horizontal fiber cement panels wrap around the darker, larger panel, resulting in a dynamic expression at corners and parapets. The horizontal paneling continues this wrapping/masking effect at the rear façade, extending over the walkways. The Rear façade also contains a highlight of the project: the metal-clad accent stair which boldly directs visitors inside.
