Samuel Kelsey Apartments

Washington, DC

The firm’s initial restoration and adaptation of this former department store into senior housing and commercial space was completed in 1983, and required the addition of two new stories to the historic structure. The design scheme stepped back the new 4th and 5th floors to preserve sight lines from the street. Selective interior demolition of the site was employed to create a light filled interior courtyard and parking areas. In 2012, a second generation of renovations and building improvements were concluded.
