Designed by Gensler, 800 – 17th Street PNC Place, Located at the confluence of 17th and H Streets in Washington DC, United States. PNC Place resides on a prominent corner a block away from the White House. With axial views to the Monument, the building is oriented toward this remarkable southern exposure. In a city of monuments, the team set out to design a building that is of its context, is timeless in its style and is precise in its detailing. The building also aspires to establish a new benchmark in the city by achieving LEED Platinum status.
The base and lobby of the building are designed to be of a scale familiar to the immediate context and to make a large urban room that connects the lobby to the prominent street corner. The tall double-height glass walls create an inviting environment connecting the exterior and interior spaces.
