The Citadel Apartments

View Gallery  

The Citadel Apartments are 39 unique loft units inserted into the Citadel, a prominent 1940’s domed structure located on a residential street in the eclectic Adams Morgan neighborhood of DC. Developed by the Douglas Development Corporation, the project entailed the adaptive reuse of the vacant space beneath the existing concrete dome, and above a recently completed Harris Teeter grocery store.  The design carefully balances the technical challenges of construction above an operational grocer in an historic building, the development requirements of maximizing available space, and the aesthetic goal of permitting the shape of the existing roof structure to feature significantly in the new residential interiors.
