Project Summary: The AAMC Headquarters Building is an 11-story, 290,000 square-foot concrete structure with 13,750 square feet of retail space on the ground level and three below-grade parking levels. The exterior features multiple façades, including curtainwall, ribbon and punched windows and metal and terra cotta panels. The interior scope of work included a three-story atrium with high-end finishes, two fountains, and five ornamental stairways. The three story lobby atrium fills the space with natural light. An eye-catching vertical water feature at the western end of the lobby - notably visible from Mount Vernon Square - visually connects to an exterior pool with stone seating walls inviting to passers-by.
The main office tower features an open-space office plan with ergonomic work areas and abundant natural light. Designed to foster collaboration through spaces such as project teaming labs, social hubs, more than 60 conference rooms, the building also has a rooftop terrace and café for staff and member functions. The two-story learning center, with state-of-the art equipment, features a 200-person capacity multipurpose room and eight additional conference rooms to accommodate meetings and professional development programs for AAMC members and constituents.
