600 Massachusetts Ave

Project Details

600 Massachusetts Avenue, designed by DC-based architecture and design firm CORE, is described as “Tomorrow’s Workplace, Today”. It is an environment that offers the perks demanded of today’s forward-thinking professionals. CORE captured this ‘city oasis’ by incorporating landscaped terraces, a rooftop garden, state-of-art fitness center and YGD’s organic “Promises Promises” light fixture in the double height atrium. The newly completed, 10-story LEED® Platinum building is constructed mainly of glass. This provided CORE the opportunity to suspend a can’t-miss-it piece that draws attention to the interior from both inside and out. Promises Promises is comprised of 270 wave pattern strips built from frosted acrylic that resemble a flock of birds in full animation. Amongst the abstract elements, we suspended 62 solid glass balls lit with LEDs which contributed to the sustainability requirements of the project. The goal of the design was to create a continual sense of motion, buoyed by an equally serene sense of space. The feature installation was special in the fact that the space had two different ceiling heights. We designed separate canopies and suspended the elements in such a way that they formed one fluid sculpture. The mirrored finish on the ceiling plates create sparkle and illumination for an additional ‘wow’ moment.
