Multi-Building Development Includes Buildings by Handel Architects and Others

The Wharf has created a sustainable, mixed-use neighborhood that honors Washington, DC's history. Handel Architects' building, Vio & Incanto at The Wharf, is expressed using an industrial palette found in warehouses, docks and other waterfront structures. The building’s podium is split by a “Piazza Mews,” and further broken into smaller pavilions to break down the scale. The rhythm and feel of the podium is industrial, expressed with brick, black metal and glass, yet each of the individual pavilions is articulated differently based on the space it is facing.
