Chicago Architects Brininstool + Lynch: 6th Street DC

6th Street DC

Washington, DC 

2017

The brick and glass 6th Street DC condominiums fit comfortably within their century-old context of attached row houses in Washington, DC’s Shaw neighborhood. The three-story-tall structure houses six three-bedroom duplex condominium units. Floor-to-ceiling glazing on the first and second floors provide natural light, and enhance views to the street and backyards.

While maintaining the historic low-scale context of the neighborhood was important, the metal-framed windows frankly express their modern design origins. The interiors support contemporary modes of living, with natural materials, crisp details, and custom millwork. A variety of outdoor spaces, including roof decks, patios and a backyard, allow residents to enjoy the outside during the many pleasant weather days in the nation’s capital.
