1225 Lofts

Washington, DC
In an effort to revitalize the property the building was completely gutted and redesigned to accommodate 78 residential units.

One of the noteworthy design challenges on this project was to address the eight-foot concrete deck-to-deck ceiling height constraint of the existing structure. To do this, the loft concept was introduced, achieved by the saw-cutting of structural floor slabs and addition of structural steel beams on every other floor, to create modern two story loft spaces in several of the units, completed with steel spiral stairs and two-story window walls. Construction also included the full demolition of the building interior and installation of modern unit layouts with all new life-safety, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems. The exterior facade was redesigned to capture the Art Deco style.
