Artists Circle started sourcing concepts for a new Brookland, DC development several years ago. The site, once home to printing presses, typesetting tools, and barrels of ink, was transformed by Douglas Development into a vibrant multifamily building, with awesome amenities, such as a rooftop pool, a gym that overlooks the Metro, a dog wash and dog park, several outdoor spaces, a yoga studio, and more.
Initially, the artwork theme was more directly tied into the building's former use; over time, the collection evolved, with some pieces referencing the site's industrial roots, and others simply interjecting bright color with some cultural references.
Artists Circle could not have been more delighted to work on such a fun project! Many thanks to the design team - GTM Architects, Douglas Development, Kettler - for working with us through the selection and installation process!
