Renovations to National Geographic’s historic campus, our second project with the organization, aim to connect their two commercial office buildings along 16th Street for a more cohesive and welcoming campus environment. Upon completion, the existing buildings will be rooted in a new public plaza and connected by a central pavilion with a rooftop terrace that serves as an entrance and event space. The new design creates a level entry plane for the buildings, while a pedestrian pathway guides visitors along the perimeter of the campus and into the plaza. The activation reimagines the public space as a gateway for the organization along M Street, bringing renewed energy to the pedestrian experience.
