Trellis House
Washington d.c.


Located in the historic North Shaw neighborhood in Washington D.C., Trellis House provides a dynamic communal hub for young professionals seeking a diverse social atmosphere. The market-rate, mixed-use development activates the street edge with retail and engages the neighboring park with walk-up townhomes. “Provide someone a great place to live, work, and grow” was the charge from the client, so NBA incorporated a unique combination of amenities including a state-of-the-art fitness center with yoga studio, interactive test kitchen, outdoor pool and grill area and hydroponic roof top garden. The city’s first LEED Platinum-rated multifamily building promotes wellness and includes sustainable elements such as green roofs, bio-retention planters, LED lighting fixtures and recycling facilities. The firm worked closely with nearby Howard University, neighborhood associations and Congress in the development process to bring the project to fruition.
