Timber grows up

"'D.C. is a concrete town. The question is whether we can provide wood that allows our clients to get more value for their finished product." - Tom Corrado, Senior Designer at Hickok Cole on approaching mass timber design in DC with Building Design+Construction.

Anyone who doubts that mass timber is mainstreaming into commercial, institutional, and multifamily construction should direct their gaze toward Arkansas. That’s where Walmart, the world’s largest retailer, was instrumental in luring Structurlam, one of the largest mass timber producers in North...

With back-to-school season approaching fast, @Jacksonandjamesmen’s got your fashion needs covered. The Richmond menswear boutique offers brands focused on craftsmanship and storytelling - just like the store’s interior concept. Each design element curated by our @hickokcole.rva team to provide a modern approach to the “All American” aesthetic, including old railroad carts used as displays, suspended historic window panes and shelving crafted from a fallen tree in the Hollywood Cemetery.

F1RST was designed with community in mind – the vibrant development sits at the heart of Washington, DC’s burgeoning Navy Yard district and provides residents with the ultimate entertainment experience. The luxury apartment complex features ample opportunities for socializing or relaxing including a game room with oversized connect four, a rooftop dog park, grilling stations with dining room tables and an outdoor theater for movie screenings or watching big games with friends. Located steps away from National Park, residents have access to a rooftop terrace and swimming pool that provide unobstructed views of the stadium. Talk about VIP access!

Last Wednesday evening, we hosted a Building Community happy hour to introduce the new Arts on the Block studio design to our industry partners. AOB studio crew presented their works in progress, shared their donor opportunities for the studio build out, and led a mosaic workshop for the event attendees. Our design team shared their vision for the new studio design with renderings and a virtual reality experience so everyone could walk through the new mosaic studio.

Thank you to all our friends in attendance for your excitement to get involved, and to our engineering partners GPI for joining us on this project. We’ll be reaching out to new partners throughout the summer. Please reach out if you’d like to learn more.

Special thanks to the many Full Circle Committee event volunteers, the Happy Hour Committee for donated beverages, and Pizzeria Paradiso for donated food.

Miriam's Kitchen operates the only meals program serving DC’s homeless that is open year round, Monday-Friday, regardless of weather or holidays. Hickok Cole’s #FullCircle group has had a long on-going relationship with the organization. This past year Full Circle completed a refresh of their kitchen, as well as a concept design to reprogram their offices. And this morning a group of us helped prepare and serve breakfast to their guests. Thanks to Miriam's Kitchen for having us, and for all you do for the DC community. #workthatmatters #itstartswithameal #fighttoendhomelessness #MKpartners #whyigive #hickokcole #volunteer
