The PenfieldAn adaptive reuse project designed to preserve a historic structure’s façades and integrate them into a new, mixed-use development.
The Shay, comprised of two buildings and designed for modern living in Shaw, one of Washington, D.C.’s most exciting neighborhoods, features market-rate apartments and a linear courtyard that connects both buildings across 8th Street through grand stair portals.
The mixed-use buildings feature retail space along the streets to further activate urban activity. This nod to integrating the development into the urban fabric is strengthened further by the extra-wide sidewalks.
Building features include a swimming pool, expansive sun deck, outdoor “living rooms” with grilling stations, and a resident lounge with kitchen, bar, private dining room, pool table, and media center.
