With a growing portfolio of clients in the Washington, DC metro area, Compass, a New York City-based real estate platform company, chose Douglas Development’s historic Star Laundry Building located at 1313 14th Street NW for their new Flagship office location. As the General Contractor for the base building renovation work, WINMAR was the contractor of choice for their interior build-out.
Blending the old in with the new, the interior embraces exposed brick walls painted to match the Compass color palette and incorporated a new elevator. The main floor houses a simple, chic lobby and reception . The second and third floors host elevator lobbies with wet bars, multiple open and well-lit conference rooms and bullpen-style workstations throughout the floors. The fourth floor houses the kitchen and pantry as well as an original outdoor terrace for dining al fresco. Designed by Hickok Cole, the project consisted of extensive coordination between existing base building structures and modernizations.
