400 K Street in Washington DC’s Mount Vernon Triangle district features two modern residential apartment buildings. The Lydian and the Lyric, designed by Davis Carter Scott, each feature the latest in contemporary living from rooftop retreats to resort-style pools. In a much sought-after neighborhood, the new apartments offer modern living and easy access to local transit. In addition to contemporary living space, the buildings feature retail and restaurant accommodations, creating a destination within itself.
The most compelling component of each façade is a stunning prismatic exterior fin. The iridescent fins, constructed with ALPOLIC®’s Dragonfly finish, respond to both natural and artificial light, changing hues from green to purple. The finish, as the project’s general contractors at HITT Contracting describe, “…mimics the colors of its namesake’s wings [Dragonfly].”
