Jonathan Levi Architects was asked by the GSA to upgrade an existing 400,000 square foot office bulding. The modern transformation took its cues from historic city planning through creation of interior neighborhoods. The building interior is organized into six neighborhoods comprised of clustered workstations and connected by a street-like grid. Users travel along diagonal boulevards to their desks, following lighting, soffits, and millwork that outline “urban” arteries and amenities.
The project also includes new glass entry pavilions and adjoining lobbies, four dining areas, and interior garden spaces. A new courtyard and parkscape serves as a landmark between neighborhoods.
The Burt Hill team was responsible for design integration, consultant coordination, detail development, and construction administration.
