Front Facade Low Res
Angle Perspective Low Res

Atlas District, Washington, DC

Since construction, the original two-story storefront was home to various retailers, including a furniture store, a shoe repair shop, and a barber shop. The store storefront was vacant from 2012 – 2015. Our redevelopment of the historic building, following purchase by new ownership, included a two-story retail space with two residential units above. The residential space brings in a new material and is set back ten feet to respect the existing façade while still complementing it.

The residential portion includes a one-bedroom, one-bath unit with a rear balcony and large terrace and a two-bedroom, 2-bath unit with front and rear balconies, and a large private roof area with views of Union Station, the Washington Monument, and the US Capitol. The two-story retail space features a dramatic 20-foot-high ceiling, a loft area with private deck, and a full basement.

1115 H


Atlas District, Washington, DC

1115 H Street, NE is a 16 unit mixed-use condominium/retail project along the rapidly developing H Street, NE corridor. The design reinterprets the industrial typology of warehouse buildings once prevalent along the H Street corridor. H Street NE was one of the early business districts in the District of Columbia and home to the first Sears and Roebuck store in Washington. During the 1968 riots the neighborhood experienced severe damage and a period of decline. Construction was completed in 2016 and 1115 H Street NE was certified LEED Platinum in the District of Columbia.
