Contemporary residential living located at The Yards in Washington DC. The interior design of this 326-unit multifamily building is inspired by the Danish word “Hygge” the art of building sanctuary and community and paying attention to what makes us feel open-hearted and alive. The glass courtyard is an outdoor oasis cascading natural light and shadow into the building. Inviting amenities include a floating gym, skybridge, rooftop terrace, pool, ample green space, and co-working spaces. Materials and products used in the design were thoughtfully selected to contribute to this sustainable and healthy living experience and enhance the lifestyle brand. The residential unit design encompasses Scandinavian-designed kitchens and bathrooms with a focus on clean design and living.

A variety of seating and coworking areas provide diverse experiences throughout the space and promote a sense of belonging, whether you are looking to socialize or enjoy a peaceful moment alone. The neutral palette is brought to life through a variety of textures, tones, and natural materials that create a sense of warmth and a feeling of being home.

The “Hygge” lifestyle brand extends into the residences with unique Scandinavian furniture and accessory selections throughout providing a warm, calming, and relaxing interior environment. Subtle shades of neutrals, woven textiles, and European linens are layered and placed for a soft and cozy living space. One of a kind pottery, weavings, and artwork pieces add personal touches.
