Previous Review


Dear Mr. Brady:

In the meeting of 21 September, the Commission of Fine Arts reviewed and approved the revised concept design for the proposed addition to the School Without Walls (formerly known as the Grant School) at 2130 G Street, NW. The Commission members commented that the front facade was much improved but suggested greater refinement in the detail of the proposed mullions of the curtainwall system. In addition, the Commission would like the next submission to include more development of the plaza landscape and streetscape design with some alternatives to the proposed vertical building sign above the entrance.

Please submit the project for a revised concept review when ready. If you have any questions, the staff is available to assist you.
