Easy Does It

Designed by the noted U.K.-based firm Rogers Stirk Harbour Partners in collaboration with HKS, the newly constructed 300 New Jersey Avenue in Washington, D.C., centers on a light-filled atrium with a highly articulated glass and steel structure of stairs and connecting bridges that unites three surrounding buildings.

A decisive architectural gesture, the entrance to 300 New Jersey Avenue is defined by the triangular roof form that boldly juts out over the building and is supported by a structural “tree,” which continues inside and is painted yellow.

The lighting follows the architecture's economy, using T5 fluorescents to delineate the undersides of the bridges and lightpipe to highlight the verticality of the stair core (bottom).
