This interior build-out comprises a 2 floor facility with a "raw look" featuring exposed beams, concrete, steel and glass. The expandable two-level glass enclosed conference room is the centerpiece of the design allowing for easy adaption to different conference/classroom sizes. Architectural details include a recessed wood floor, glass walkway, new elevator, new staircase, millwork slat panels, and the two-level glass-enclosed conference/classroom.
Located in the historic Odd Fellows building built in 1917, the facility stands in the heart of the Downtown Historic District. The District Architecture Center is a place for both the public and the professional to celebrate architecture. A collaboration of the Washington Architectural Foundation (WAF) and its partner the Washington Chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA|DC), the center fosters a greater participation in city life for architects and the public.
The AIA|DC District Architecture Center is LEED® CI v3.0 Gold certified.
