Meridian on First, Phase 2: Bringing Sophisticated Whimsy to the Navy Yard

Partnering with Paradigm Companies, the HDG design team dialed up “sophisticated whimsy” in this Washington, DC apartment building. Located in the diverse Navy Yard district, the interiors are inseparable from the active neighborhood scene.

Both spacious and inviting, the two-story lobby is designed to foster a sense of community while intimate nooks encourage informal gatherings. Artful screening elements are used to delineate zones without sacrificing a sense of openness. Throughout, multiple booths and pods provide private concentration havens, everything the modern-day nomadic worker might need.

And nestled in a sunny corner of the lobby is a maker room where the property hosts craft classes and wine tastings.

Residents and guests are drawn to the mezzanine coworking lounge by a glass, steel and wood staircase that overlooks the lobby. The cozy lounge atmosphere offers multiple opportunities for heads down work.

To seamlessly integrate the indoor and outdoor amenities the HDG team was tasked with design of both the indoor and outdoor amenities. Located on the penthouse level, the light filled, three-sided glass clubroom spotlights an indoor-outdoor bar, a floating gas fireplace and multiple seating arrangements.

 

Blending the interior and the exterior space, the expansive roof deck features a pool, multiple fire pits, outdoor coworking niches and, a shade pergola with day-bed swings. Views of the Washington, DC skyline are vast and draw the eye well beyond the confines of the site.

Affordable age-restricted multi-family communities can be

Want to see what affordable multi-family age-restricted communities can be?

As interior designers of multi-family communities in all economic categories, our approach to affordable housing comes from the following beliefs:

  • We believe that affordable housing works when it provides more than just a place to live, when all stakeholders are committed to making a long-term investment in our community and in the health, safety and well-being of residents.
  • We believe that affordable multifamily buildings that look, feel, and live like market-rate apartments promote a sense of place and self-worth.
  • We believe that a beautiful home fosters feelings of sanctuary and elevates pride in one’s surroundings.
  • We believe that the connection to nature enhances wellness and it is our duty as design professionals to merge the built environment with the natural world.
  • We believe that through collaboration and design excellence, we can create engaging, healthy, energy-efficient, affordable homes for people of all socioeconomic backgrounds.
  • We believe that solutions take shape when caring professionals partner for the good of our community.

This charming 62-plus high rise multi-family community is nestled on a quiet block within Rockville Town Center, a walkable community. Residents enjoy the village green, restaurants, shops and cultural centers. The design is light and fresh and uses biophilic patterns throughout to enhance the health, happiness, and wellness of the residents.

Remy Phase II is Open! (Berman Enterprises Partner to The Remy)

Following the success of The Remy phase one, Hartman Design Group partnered with BCT Architects, LIVEbe Communities, and Berman Enterprises to complete The Remy II multifamily apartment building. Remy II rounds out the two-building community and creates a sense of place within walking distance of Amtrak’s New Carrollton station.
Playing off the transportation theme, this multi-family property was designed for the dreamer and the doer, for the person who craves the comfort of home and is ready at any moment to jump on a train to Washington, DC, or head north to work or play in Baltimore, Philadelphia or New York City.
The resulting community is a shared vision embraced by all. The interior design, with an emphasis on lifestyle and resident engagement, features double-height ceilings and views of the large, lush courtyard from every amenity. The spaces are designed to blur indoor and outdoor living. Biophilic design features are used throughout to benefit the residents with a connection to nature that positively impacts their mental and physical health.
Work and play anywhere is the theme at The Remy II. The interior is simultaneously generous and intimate. Maximizing natural light and establishing a sense of spaciousness, the open plan layout delineates the work/play zones using see-through shelving and screening elements. Supporting the “work from anywhere” trend, individual work pods provide residents their own personal “office away from office.” And with three distinct (and spread apart) kitchen/bar hospitality zones — from the main area coffee lounge and sports bar to the massive center communal kitchen, to the rooftop indoor/outdoor bar and grill areas, there are plenty of opportunities for communal dining and drinking.
There is truly something for everyone at The Remy II, and its award-winning lease-up pace reflects that!
