Saturday’s Washington Post featured Wardman Tower, our project with JBG Companies that transforms the historic tower into 32 luxury condominiums. Wardman Tower is an impressive Georgian Revival-style building on 2.5 acres of gardens that overlooks Washington from its Woodley Park site. It was built in 1928 by Harry Wardman, and was originally designed by Mihran Mesrobian. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1984.

Our design draws inspiration from the abundant natural light and vistas allowed by the site’s height and the tower’s numerous windows. The floor plans highlight the views and the proportions celebrate a gracious way of living. We were also influenced by the connection between Washington and Paris that dates back to Thomas Jefferson and Pierre L’Enfant; we designed the homes to be appropriate for the 21st century, with a nod to the aesthetics and richness of Paris.
