1724 F Street

Washington DC

1724 F Street is an historic federal office building located in the heart of Washington, DC. The building and associated landscape are part of the General Service Administration’s First Impressions Program which rehabilitates historic buildings and landscapes that are rundown and not consistent with the mission of the high-level Federal Agency that they serve.

Annapolis Landscape Architects designed the garden to extend the symmetry of the building’s facade into the landscape.  The sense of enclosure creates a foyer-like public gathering area for visitors as they enter and exit the building.  Planting and hardscape material were upgraded to be more native and sustainable.
