1900 N Street

1900 N Street

Rising above its surroundings, 1900 N Street spans an entire city block while maintaining an elegance that is light and airy.

1900 N Street serves as a gateway to Washington D.C’s central business district. The transparent triple-height corner entry hosts an open and inviting lobby, while, internally, the building maintains a floor plate that is perfectly suited to its law firm tenant and allows for greater density within a restricted massing envelope. A full city block of ground level retail space activates a commercial streetscape, while a below-grade garage provides convenient parking for building tenants.

Encased by translucent glass curtain walls, the primary volumes seem to float around the building’s defining sculptural element—a dramatic, 12-story, red truss. The truss stretches vertically near the building’s core, where it is exposed as an exoskeletal structure, and then angles to the east, shifting behind the curtain wall as a visible endoskeleton to define the northeastern roofline.

The rooftop atrium and adjoining greenspace offers an unparalleled panoramic view of the capital. Landscaped terraces and floor-to-ceiling windows blur the line between the interior and exterior, an aspect complemented by a unique low temperature air system that furthers a sense of welcoming the outside in.
