Vallen Design Studio

Rising from ashes in Logan Circle


Situated on a nonconforming lot in a strictly controlled historic district, this project went through many levels of review and approval before construction even began. 1000 Rhode Island Avenue is a gateway to the Logan Circle neighborhood, but before the client purchased the property, it was a burned out shell. Vallen Design Studio transformed the property into a 4-story apartment building, plus basement, meeting the height and grandeur of the adjacent properties while adding tremendous value to the property. The project won a Mayor's Award for Historic Preservation.
