Q14 Condominiums has a decidedly modern mien, but it fits the scale and proportions of the commercial buildings on one adjacent street and the traditional row houses on another. Located along the rapidly changing 14th Street corridor in the nation’s capital, the building consists of two interlocking forms that pinwheel around a taller volume. Multilevel bays allow floor-to-­ceiling glass, which brings maximum light to the open-plan, modern interiors. Each unit also offers much-appreciated private balconies with mahogany and steel trellises for shading.
