Review Type


Dear Mr. Mancabelli:

In its meeting of 17 September, the Commission of Fine Arts reviewed a concept submission for the proposed expansion of the gymnasium complex at St. John's College High School, located at 2607 Military Road, NW (case number SL 15-161). The Commission approved the submission with recommendations for the development of the final design.

The Commission members commended the project team for a design that works to integrate the gymnasium building with the rest of the school campus, noting particularly the improvements to the blank facades of the existing gym volumes. They recommended that the plant palette along 27th Street be simplified, and they suggested consideration of a more architectural treatment for the fencing enclosing the rooftop tennis courts.

The Commission looks forward to review of the next submission. As always, the staff is available to assist you.
