Description: The new hotel structure, Moxy, incorporates the historic facades of three adjacent townhouses that have been restored and rebuilt, reducing the building’s lifecycle impact. Focusing on its minimalistic, millennial appeal, Moxy’s bare-essential approach of having “micro rooms” maximizes the building’s room count and reduces overall construction costs. The emphasis on DC’s goal of building green encouraged the hotel’s design to incorporate a Variable Refrigerant Volume heating and cooling system for energy-optimization. The project was completed in November 2018 with ample social space, a restaurant, 24-hour café, and rooftop bar that showcases the city skyline.
