701 2nd Street NE

For this mixed use residential and commercial project that is to play a key part of the redevelopment of the H-Street Corridor in Northeast Washington DC near Union Station, we envisioned design elements to extend the image and quality of the building into the public realm and create a hyper-social ground floor and rooftop for residents and visitors alike. Streetscape elements include a strong canopy of Zelkova trees, seating in the form of large bluestone monoliths, a new stair connecting 2nd and H Streets that features green wall panel system and provide a lush vertical moment of surprise in a place that has been a sea of concrete and asphalt for decades. Inside the building, two courtyards extend the landscape into the built space, providing opportunities for both passive and active/flexible uses through spatially layering design elements. Both stormwater and groundwater are key drivers of the design both in the streetscape and the two courtyards: Bio-filtration cells underlie the Zelkova canopy, and an Eco Pond in the South Courtyard is the manifestation of a raised water table and rainwater collection system that will sustain robust and varied wetland plant communities providing ranging texture and color throughout all seasons of the year.
