Designed in 1929, the Del-Teet Building reflects Capitol Hill’s early reputation as an art and design hub. The owner wanted to convert its commercial purpose to multi-family residential use without losing the building’s original character.

The solution was to set a new structure inside the original shell, resulting in a mixed-use project that preserved all aspects of the original building expression and form, while able to accommodate the future needs of the neighborhood.
