Armenian Genocide Museum
ARMENIAN genocide museum
The Armenian Genocide Museum and Memorial project consists of the contemporary addition to and adaptive reuse of the former National Bank of Washington Building, located at 615-621 14th Street NW, Washington, DC. The building is a designated historic landmark by the Historic Preservation Office of the District of Columbia and both its exterior façade and interior public spaces are protected from alteration without approval by the Historic Preservation Review Board (HPRB).
It is the intention of the Owner to modify the existing building with an addition in the lot to the east of the structure for use as a museum and memorial to the Armenian Genocide. This scope of work will include the restoration of the exterior of the historic building, new ground level storefront facades, new mechanical and electrical systems, a rehabilitated interior set up for use as the museum, the addition of vertical circulation elements such as fire stairs and elevators, new museum and standard office areas, and new restrooms.
Martinez+Johnson Architecture worked with the Owner and exhibit designer to provide schematic Design for an addition, outdoor garden and expansive museum within the confines of the existing building and lot.
