2016 Affordable Housing Architectural Design Awards
The Affordable Housing Conference of Montgomery County advocates that “decent, safe and affordable housing for all Americans is an inalienable right and not a privilege.” Cunningham | Quill Architects is thrilled that the House of Lebanon was recognized for its role in providing affordable housing to seniors and awarded first place in the renovation category.
House of Lebanon Featured in AIA DC’s ArchitectureDC Magazine
Cunningham | Quill Architect’s renovation and revitalization of the abandoned Margaret Murray Washington School, located in the historic Shaw neighborhood, into affordable housing for seniors, was featured in the 2016 Summer issue of ArchitectureDC. Author G. Martin Moeller, Jr., Assoc. AIA states that:
Although the building has been converted form academic to residential use, in many ways it has come full circle. “When we went back to do a photo shoot after the building opened,” said Scott Matties, AIA, LEED AP, Principal-in-Charge, “we met a couple of residents who had gone to school there or who had a brother or sister who did.” The House of Lebanon is thus not only a symbol of the city’s changing socioeconomic fortunes, but also a landmark to communal continuity.
