FOX Architects’ is honored with a NAIOP Maryland/DC Award

May 5, 2011

(MAY 5, 2011) –FOX Architects, a Washington, D.C.-based interior design and architecture firm, received NAIOP’s prestigious Award of Merit for Best Interior Tenant Space up to 10,000 sf at NAIOP Maryland/DC’s ninth annual Awards of Excellence Ceremony hosted in Washington, D.C.

The award winning project, David All Group (DAG) is a new media organization located in the heart of downtown Washington, D.C. This 6,000 sf project was designed to reflect DAG’s fundamental belief that the internet can and will transform every aspect of our lives. The design was very creative in encompassing both flexibility and the collaborative spirit of the organization.

This unique design was a joint effort between the design team and DAG. The team sought to rethink traditional design solutions to develop a bold workplace.  Spaces such as the “Interactive Gateway,” which is a twist on the conventional reception area and the “Medial lab,” which houses the collaborative workspace that drives the company’s day to day business. Together, these areas support David All Group’s core mission to reshape online interaction.

“Working with DAG was a rewarding experience,” said Jim Allegro, FOX Architects, “David allowed us to push the boundaries of design and the result was both original and functional.”

Congratulations to the other award recipients. For the full list of finalists please visit:
