The organic shaping of the Key Bridge Residences responds to the shoreline of the nearby Potomac River.

The Key Bridge Residences is a new two-tower development located on the Virginia side of the Potomac River, facing Washington, DC's historic Georgetown neighborhood. The towers are part of a larger multi-building development that includes new residential, retail, public space, and the renovation of the Key Bridge Marriott hotel, named for the famous bridge that connects Virginia to DC.

The buildings act as a gateway for the Rosslyn neighborhood, which is dominated by rectilinear office towers. In contrast, the architectural expression here is organic and natural to the river, which dominates the landscape. Using biophilic principles of curves over straight lines and hard angles, the building serves as a model for a less stressful urban environment, and an appropriate revitalization of this site. The interplay between the glass lines and the slab edges echo the river and allos the sunlight to emphasize the sculptural nature of the architecture.

Most of the units will have balconies and many of the larger units will span the width of the building. Amenities will include a library, a fitness room with yoga and spin studios, rooftop clubrooms and terraces.
