Year Completed: 

Formerly a 130-year-old Masonic Temple, listed in the National Register of Historic Places, 901 F Street, NW incorporates the historic structure into a new 130,000-square-foot office building.

Completed in 2000, the 901 F Street, NW complex offers 15,000 square feet of retail space and a total of 115,000 square feet of office space. The 40,000 square-foot Masonic Temple is connected to an eight-story building via a glass atrium and bridges constructed on multiple floors. 

The design combined the Masonic Temple's existing architectural elements with modern office features. A highly articulated limestone façade and arch with bronze storefront marks the building's entrance, opening into a dramatic glass and limestone tower atrium which includes the existing back brick wall of the Masonic Temple. Included in the atrium are handsome marble floors and a grand stair leading to the second floor. The Clark team also restored the Temple's 25-foot-high Great Hall.
