ARCHI-TEXTUAL is a 4 person collaborative architectural design firm located in Washington DC’s Georgetown, facing the Key Bridge and the Potomac River. Our primary focus areas are single and multi-family residential, hospitality, retail, and small commercial.
At ARCHI-TEXTUAL we provide thoughtful, personalized design services to meet your unique needs, helping you maximize your return on investment and quality of life.
We believe each project has a unique text, and tells a unique story. It starts with who our clients are and their goals for the project, and includes the site conditions and inherent characteristics of the property. Our role is to transform that base text into a narrative that synthesizes the various project constraints into a coherent whole.
We are committed to ensuring that project goals and expectations will be exceeded through our involvement, regardless of project type or scale.
