Congress Heights – Washington, DC
Centered along symmetrical contrast.
Proud and expansive centralized moments were the hallmarks of Mr. Archer’s work. A double-height space at the entry of the building allowed for punctuated moment of illumination. It was necessary for the light fixture to not only fill the volume but tier down to a level of visual accessibility. We designed an opportunity for residents to follow the light layered with individual paths of black linear details. The wood texture contrasts the black elements while anchoring the space in warmth.
