Rock Creek House in Washington D.C. by NADAAA

Saturday, March 25th, 2017

Article source: NADAAA 

The Rock Creek House is an adaptive re-use project of a 1920’s brick structure that was originally composed of two floors, with a mechanical basement and attic. This adaptation leverages the robustness of the existing structure to capture the attic and basement to double the house’s size, while expanding its functions into the landscape.

Tuesday, January 20th, 2015

Article source: Miguel A. Arias

Supported by actual studies, this science includes theories and structure still unconfirmed, making possible validity and creation, any invention of the uncertain or nonexistent.

The Rock Creek meets the Potomac in a thin peninsula. It’s the site of a lifetime. The needle with water on three sides commands a spectacular view of such landmarks as Georgetown, Watergate and the Kennedy Center.
