The 187-unit Saratoga on Connecticut Avenue in Washington D.C. is one of the last remaining sites among Washington’s classic large-scale, grandiose apartment buildings. Taking cues from patterns long since established, the Saratoga’s main entry is flanked by two protruding towers. The south façade is articulated by a series of alternating bays and balconies, providing the apartments with light-filled main living spaces and outdoor access. Units along the north façade are skewed 45 degrees to capitalize on the view to the east. Serving the large senior population in the neighborhood, an 8,000 SF medical clinic occupies the ground floor along Brandywine Street. A landscaped garden offers a pleasant retreat from the hustle and bustle of the Avenue.
