Amenity Spaces Enliven DC’s Commercial Real Estate Options

Crown Properties, Inc. and DC architecture firm Wingate Hughes recently partnered with Martone Construction on a 6,700 SF sub-level amenity space design at 1110 Vermont Ave, NW. Project players, including Crown Properties’ partner Matthew Lefkowitz and CBRE SVP Carroll Cavanagh, envisioned a dynamic, multi-use area for building occupants to retreat from daily life stresses, entertain clients, hold conferences, and hang with colleagues.

Wingate Hughes’ lengthy list of tech startup and base building design work gave the architecture firm a unique perspective for this amenity space and ensured the new bonus room would be anything but ordinary. The original design inspiration began with tree houses and playing with degrees of height and evolved into an urban oasis filled with California vibes and straightforward, raw elements.

The amenity space is a place to decompress and zen out — definitely a unique offering in DC’s commercial real estate market. The floating meditation room’s Resawn charred wood conveys natural inspiration, and the frosted glass gives privacy for yoga and meditation. The perimeter rock garden and projected diffused-glow lights enhance the room’s introspective, calming feel.

The skater ramp lounge provides ample places to sit and works as tiered event seating or chill-out spots for lunch and casual conversations.

Inside the meditation room indirect light and finishes like the BuzziSkin wallcoverings and Shaw Contract carpeting soften the atmosphere.
