15 Projects in 15 Weeks: Park Hill Condominium (Week 5)

Located in Upper Northwest, Washington, DC along Connecticut Avenue, this condominium building brings a modern architectural vocabulary to an established neighborhood.

Responding to the masonry apartment buildings that form the street wall along Connecticut Avenue, Park Hill’s two brick and cast stone “bookends” anchor the building. A metal and glass facade rises eight stories between these bookends, culminating in a collection of forms that comprise the penthouse, a lantern-like volume that offers commanding views of Downtown Washington, DC.

The building’s graduated massing preserves the streetscape, while creating twenty-nine luxury condominium units, whose free-flowing interiors and modern elements introduce a new typology of urban living.
