Architect’s Newspaper has chosen Capital One Café – Georgetown (Washington, D.C.) as the best retail project of the year in its annual AN Best of Design Awards competition.
Capital One Café reestablishes the placemaking role of banking with a flagship café. Less a branch than a local social/coworking space, the café offers a cozy environment for neighborhood residents to “stress less, save more and find inspiration in the people around you.”
The interior creates neighborhood with a welcoming environment and local materials, furnishings and artwork. Three stories connected by a spiral staircase provide a variety of seating and functional options to support the social and entrepreneurial needs of neighbors. Communal tables and lounge chairs, meeting rooms with digital presentation media, free Wi-Fi with power outlets and video teller ATMs transform the bank into a social hub.
The design is in synch with its historic Georgetown surroundings. The interior design makes preservation of its storied 1920s architecture a focal point. Restored brick walls, exposed and repaired wood beam ceilings and repaired historic tile celebrate the building’s history.
