For the firm’s work on the Wythe Hotel in Brooklyn’s Williamsburg neighborhood, the firm renovated an old factory into a destination boutique hotel.

MA also designed 837 Washington as a sustainable addition to an existing warehouse in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District to meet the NYC Landmark Preservation Commission’s exacting guidelines.

Here in DC, Adjmi’s most recent project, Atlantic Plumbing, interprets its industrial site aesthetically and incorporates a mixed-use program, which will help grow the Shaw neighborhood’s pedestrian culture.
