1100 Wilson Boulevard
The increasingly competitive real estate landscape of the Washington Metro Area has placed renewed emphasis on the importance of creative amenity programs that telegraph a property’s signature brand and immediately differentiate the asset from competitors. Owner and developer, Monday Properties, engaged OTJ Architects to conceive of a rooftop terrace space that would bolster 1100 Wilson Boulevard’s appeal by supporting the workstyle of a tenant base that has come to demand flexibility and hospitality inspired office environments.

Perched atop the building’s 31st floor, and available for use by tenants of both Towers that comprise the property, this arresting indoor/outdoor venue represents the culmination of a three-year design process. Working in conjunction with the ownership team, and with a mandate to maximize the asset’s financial potential, our designers embraced the opportunity to reimagine liminal space as a revenue generating amenity. Accordingly, the terrace, which showcases sweeping skyline views of the Capital, was carved from previously unused space and is accessible by its own elevator – repurposed from one the building’s freight lifts.
The terrace’s design facilitates the convergence of work and play by juxtaposing collaborative areas against plush, contemporary seating arrangements that can be rapidly reconfigured to accommodate myriad event types. The design also underscores the property’s relationship with its exterior surroundings through a folding NanaWall system, a sculptural biophilic mural, an expansive gas fireplace, and polished concrete floors. This considered addition now functions as a year-round, casual collision point that enables the recruitment and retention efforts of tenants and broadens the property’s marketability.
