The Bentley

Washington, DC

“ exciting design contributing to the Arts District.”

Fourteenth Street, NW Washington, DC has undergone a dramatic revitalization in the last decade. The Bentley located on the west side of 14th Street just south of Rhode Island Avenue and north of Thomas Circle is a part of the Arts Overlay and a Historic Preservation district. The project replaced a one-story auto-body shop and surface parking lot with a new mixed-use building that contributes to the vitality of this exciting neighborhood.

The Bentley includes 48,600 square feet of gross floor area, which includes 53 residential units and 4,135 square feet of neighborhood serving retail. The project also includes 20 off-street parking spaces, with 3 covered surface spaces and 17 spaces located in a below-grade parking garage.

The team worked closely with the adjacent neighbors and Advisory Neighborhood Commissions (ANC) to refine the design of the building to be compatible within its historic context while still providing an exciting design to contribute to the Arts District. The design incorporates materials in keeping with the historic context while being clearly contemporary in its detailing.
