Butterfield House Architectural Tour


The Butterfield House will be offering a guided tour, led by the project architect, Sassan Gharai, principle of SGA Architects of Bethesda. The tour will take place at 3 pm on Saturday, July 26th, on location at 1020 Pennsylvania Ave., SE. The Butterfield House, a 28-unit residential building near Capitol Hill's Eastern Market, recently completed construction, and was featured last month by the prestigious National Building Museum for its design, which successfully blends modern amenities and technology within the framework of Capitol Hill's historic fabric, adding to the Hill an elegantly detailed structure, even by the rigorous standards of the surrounding architecture.
SGA Architects has designed and developed a number of large commercial, residential, and retail buildings throughout the greater DC area. Development of the Butterfield House, named after celebrated architect William Butterfield, involved removal and remediation of the structures and soil of the service station that had occupied the site for many years. Mr. Gharai will be discussing the environmental improvement of the site as the architecture and design of the building.
