Responding to the context
The project known simply as Maryland Ave, a prominent addition to Washington, DC’s iconic Capitol Hill neighborhood, is an 84-unit residential building covering an area of 86,000 square feet. It stands as a prime example of contextual architecture, as it seamlessly integrates into the historic tapestry of surrounding Victorian-style row houses; it uses classic materials, details, and proportions characteristic of the Capitol Hill aesthetic. Key design elements include custom panels adorning the corner bays of the building, an homage to the decorative façades that distinguish the historic structures in the area.
