2106 Vermont Ave NW, Washington DC

The imperative for resilient housing concepts has never been greater. The three challenges of unprecedented urban population growth, drastically increasing climate change impacts and the disturbing sociocultural trends of divisiveness, tribalism and social isolation, are exposing the ineptitude of traditional housing solutions. Coliving, on the other hand, has the potential to make a difference with its inherent sustainability and its self-fulfilling reliance on community in the biggest sense. 2106 Vermont Ave NW is the creation of a design prototype for urban coliving providing 9 residential units, 51 bedrooms, unit and building congregation spaces, and a retail space to link it to the neighborhood.

The main facade engages Vermont Avenue with its massing as well as the implementation of brick detailing paired with wood paneling. The fenestration is strategically placed to optimize daylighting and minimize heat gain, contributing to the energy efficiency of the units.

The project provides opportunities for the blending of indoor and outdoor space both within and beyond the coliving units. The rooftop amenity space promotes and encourages community, while the private bedroom and shared unit balconies allow for a place of solace; each contributing to the mental wellness of the occupants.

The court in the center of the building allows for additional light and air to enter the units and carves out additional space for unit balconies, affording occupants with a more secluded experience removed from the street and alley.

Atlas District, Washington DC

OSLOatlas is the recipient of a 2017 Washingtonian Award in the multi-family category and a finalist for the Urban Land Institute (ULI) 2018 Real Estate Trends awards.

OSLOatlas is an urban infill project on Florida Ave NE in the growing Atlas district. The area has seen a rapid influx of young professionals in the last ten years. The development caters to this group with on-trend boutique group living. The building is an eight-unit multifamily project. Each of the eight units has five bedrooms, each with a private bath. This unique layout makes the units ideal for single professionals. The monolithic modern façade clad in manganese ironspot brick, is split down the center by a monumental entry court. The entry court design was partially driven by the need for an accessible ramp as well as the design team’s desire to provide a transition from busy Florida Avenue to the building entry. The ramp floats above a serene communal terrace located at the cellar level. The back of the structure brings vibrant color to an otherwise dull alley area. The rear façade contains a 40-foot-high, brightly colored mural by a local artist Lisa Marie Thalhammer. The building massing and stark materials create a striking and minimal design that elevates the structure from conventional new construction to a building with detailing and finishes typical of high design modernism.

Common Perry


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.
