The Howard Theatre
The Howard Theatre is the nation’s oldest African-American performance hall. It’s a powerful icon of African-American music history in Washington, D.C., and around the world. Our firm made state-of-the-art interior upgrades to meet the Howard Theatre’s changing needs. These updates coordinated with the restoration of the historic exterior and increased the Theatre’s flexibility to present a variety of events. It was an award-winning project with multiple honors, including a National Presidential Citation Award and an Award of Excellence in Historic Resources from the American Institute of Architects; a Timothy Anderson Award for Excellence in Historic Rehabilitation; a Historic Preservation Award from the DC Office of Planning; a DC Catalyst Award from Uptown Professional Magazine; a Dandi Award; three American Graphic Design Awards; and an Honorable Mention at the International Design Awards.
