William Jefferson Clinton Federal Building New Facade

KCCT completed the façade on the William Jefferson Clinton Federal Building, which had been left unfinished for more than half a century due to WWII. With this challenge, we adapted the vocabulary of the original building, designed in 1931 by Delano and Aldrich, to the new circumstances in a manner consistent with the Master Plan for the Federal Triangle. The resulting façade design, with three modulations, was a thoughtful and historically sensitive solution that obtained approvals with praise from the Commission of Fine Arts and the National Capital Planning Commission. The new Indiana limestone facade was honored with a GSA Design Award for Historic Preservation and an AIA Merit Award.
