By following sound practices and guidance from expert health professionals, exercising patience in trying times, and caring for each other, we will eventually overcome our current circumstance.
We are continuing our operations remotely, effective until we can safely return to our office.

As we monitor the constantly changing health and safety situation, we will keep you informed of operations in our office.
New and Historic: Fostering Urban Communities
Bonstra | Haresign ARCHITECTS recently completed two residential projects across the city that uniquely enhance the urban fabric and reinforce a connection between their residents and the community. A new infill project along the lively H Street corridor reflects the neighborhood’s energy and diversity, with a contrast of materials and forms in a contemporary composition that relates to the proportions of its re-purposed Victorian neighbors. A Foggy Bottom rowhouse built in the late 1880’s is preserved and revitalized for a client legacy with a contemporary style and creative design solutions to allow sunlight to penetrate into a narrow building envelope.
