WMC-LA provided landscape architecture services in conjunction with the site improvements at 1220 19th Street, NW. WMC-LA collaborated closely with
Collective Architecture to design and develop a modern updated plaza for the building. The design includes granite paving, with banding, various types
of lighting, an improved streetscape and raised granite planters. The existing building extends below grade beyond its façade requiring a great deal of technical coordination to ensure all materials could be installed and proper drainage met. All the planters are designed and will be custom fabricated, with integral light fixtures, benches and signage. WMC-LA worked closely with DC DDOT and OP to achieve the goals of ownership, while still increasing the green space provided on the site.
