Location: Washington, DC
Client: Forest City Enterprises
Forest City Enterprises has commissioned Johnson Fain to design GUILD, a new mixed-use residential project containing 191 apartments near the historic Washington Navy Yard. The bold and simple massing of the 199,645 square foot building features large expanses of glass, perforated exterior shading and rooftop clerestories to maximize natural daylighting. The building’s concrete frame is animated by combinations of clear glass, industrial frames and balconies. Amenities include a two story social lounge and landscaped courtyard as well as rooftop garden with views of the Anacostia River.
