This urban residence, originally developed as a condominium, achieves sculptural richness through the use of symmetrical asymmetrical curvilinear bays, federally mandated setbacks, discretely screened balconies, and a unifying composition of juxtaposed planes and voids. A thru-block building, the facade along Eye Street is more angular and far glassier, taking advantage of its northern exposure and different context. The rooftop garden which includes a pool and the lushly landscaped central courtyard generate opportunities for quiet communal recreation essential to urban living. These amenities along with the idiosyncratic façade work in concert to provide the inhabitants an abundant environment in which numerous opportunities for renewal exist.
