Tanner Park Substantially Complete

News—————29 April 2020

Collaborating with Nelson Bryd Woltz, Studio Twenty Seven Architecture designed three pavilions and a performance stage for this new urban park.   Located in the “NOMA” – North of Massachusetts Avenue – neighborhood of Washington DC, the project was completed in April, 2020.  Originally a rail yard for freight and passenger trains, the design of the two acre site is tied to this history through the concepts of remediation and re-energization. The pavilions reflect the railroad aesthetic through the use of exposed steel and charred (Shou Sugi Ban) siding.  The pavilions house a café, storage, a performance stage and other amenities.  The park includes a large lawn to provide seating for the performances and summer movie series, shaded woodland planting and a playground.
