Before

8030 is located in an industrial site in Silver Spring, MD. The site has been retrofitted with café’s, and artist’s studios. There has also been a surge of condominium construction around the sites periphery. The site acts as a hinge between residences, retail, and 2 major streets.

The stairs act as a focal point while marking entry to the site. Conceptually the stairs are an abstraction of the industrial character of the site. A raw steel frame grabs onto an existing two-story structure. The skin of the frame is articulated in raw steel sheets, grated metal, and glass as a way to modulate light and movement.
