1301 Pennsylvania Avenue is a 13-story 29,357 m² office building located in Washington D.C. and designed by Helmut Jahn. Werner Sobek’s scope for this project includes the special facades featured in the building: the screen and the lobby walls. On the main elevation, suspended from the roof level down to the lobby, is the screen wall constituted by a structurally-optimized cable wall facade with story-high glass panels and stainless steel cables and fittings; while establishing the major presence along Pennsylvania Avenue, is the lobby wall: a 2-story high glazed facade supported by glass fins. The design of the glazed skin of the building has been engineered in order to attain to the highest performance standards.
