Washington, DC Projects • 12 Twenty One


Located in the city of Arlington and overlooking the grounds of the Arlington National Cemetery to the south, these two boutique residential buildings bring a modern edge to residents in an often overlooked residential area. The buildings contain 41 units in a smaller, west building and 90 units in the east building that are separated by a future pocket park. The buildings are designed to blend the mix of building scales of single family homes to the west and seven to eight story apartment towers to the east. The sophisticated color palate and subtle detailing of the buildings bring a unique vision to the site.
