P.T. Blooms Development tasked Jonathan Kuhn to build the eight-unit property, a boutique condominium which is located at 1434 Chapin Street, NW, 20009. Inspired by Japanese architecture, Kozo playfully blends nature and the built environment to create a series of homes that are full of light and minimize the boundaries between the manmade structure and surrounding greenery.

What makes this building unique, and worthy of a second look, is the use of materials and an undulating façade. Staggered, black-framed balconies project from the white masonry façade contrasting in both color and depth. From the interior the balconies frame views along the street and beyond. The inner skin of the balconies is clad in natural wood to soften and provide warmth against the contrasting black-and-white façade. On the outside, these black metal balconies against the white brick create a clean, modern look and act as a playful addition to the streetscape. Another important design element are the ribbons of LED lights, which are embedded into the balconies. These lights can be custom colored by residents, which help accentuate the building’s exterior at night.
