Drawing on the building’s arched windows, a vaulted spine organizes circulation and creates a subtle gradation between public and private.

This new permanent headquarters for the DC Association of Realtors, located just north of Dupont Circle, includes the renovation of a 5,300 SF floor plate and provides space for a range of uses including classroom, conference, realtor product sales, administrative offices and events.

Highlighting elements of the existing building architecture, the new space is composed of a series of architectural platonic shapes – plane, cylinder, barrel vault – each of which grounds a specific programmatic component.

Semi-cylinder sliding doors create a ‘rotunda’ conference room of a round corner bay when slid into the closed position.
