hideaway village

McInturff Architects carefully transformed two historic buildings into six rental units while creating precious—and unexpected—outdoor spaces.

Large glass openings, 10-foot-high ceilings, and exposed elements produce light-filled, relaxed interiors.

One of the architects’ favorites, the middle unit (top) divides the courtyard to clear southern views toward Northern Virginia. A warm coat of zinc cladding protects the exteriors from the urban environment (above).

Rooftop volumes on the rear units enclose mechanicals and a cooling tower. The tower distributes chilled water to the six apartments and to the buildingÕs commercial and retail spaces (above and left).
