The 555 Pennsylvania Ave. is a complete renovation of a 420,000 square foot museum to a world class academic building to include classrooms, offices, conferencing space, and media suites. The atrium of the building will feature a cascading “room stair”, a “room bridge”, a “beach” for informal gathering, and a 370 +/- seat theater with prefunction space. The building will also present several roof terraces, with stunning views of Pennsylvania Ave. and the Capitol Building. Restaurant and café spaces are being planned to compliment the other amenities of this building. Sustainable Building Partners is providing comprehensive fundamental and enhanced commissioning services through design and construction of this renovation.
