Residential Project of the Year –Attached
Judges Statement:
TThree townhomes built at 24 units to the acre sit at the nexus of Logan Circle, Shaw and 14th Street, three of Washington’s most vibrantly
revitalized historic neighborhoods. Dating back to the late 1800s, Naylor Court is one of the District’s last remaining equestrian alleys. Three replicas of a horse stable
were built in an enclave of four-story stable homes with tucked-away garage parking. Elevations achieve the look of a 19th century urban stable with heavy brick
detailing, functional barn doors and gates, horse height windows and hayloft doors & pulleys. But modern needs are answered, too, in these homes that target affluent
young buyers and empty nesters who are city-bound. There are large windows, classic molding details, and luxuriously appointed kitchens and baths For resident parking,
the design team created an interior, gated motor court.
Built with preservation in mind, Naylor Court is that rare thing: new construction that’s knit seamlessly into its century-old surroundings. “This sends an important
message,” said the judges, noting that carriage house and stable-type buildings possess an appealing scale that’s ripe for being replicated in blighted urban areas and in
new communities, too.
