Anthology. It’s a collection of things. Materials, textures, people, experiences, ideas. And here, it’s your collection.

We wanted to create a community that truly reflects the culture of H Street and makes an effort to be part of the neighborhood, from arts to music to food to all the little things that may go unnoticed but make an experience what it is. That, and be a really, really nice place to live.

    Did they purposefully not include shots with a bed in any of these photos? That seems pretty sneaky.

      When you live in such a hot neighborhood, sleep becomes unnecessary.

      • Anon

        Not just unnecessary, but also really difficult – literally too hot to sleep.

    • maxwell smart

      It’s pretty clear though from the photos – you are either have a living space or a sleeping space, not both. I’m guessing the thinking is that you are essentially using your apartment like a hotel – for sleeping and bathing – and little else.

      • Leeran

        That’s the odd part… 428 square feet isn’t totally insane for a studio. They just chose to stage it like the living room portion in a 1 bedroom.

        • CDOG

          If you look at the website the pictures are from a 1 bedroom they just did not include the bedroom picture

        I did the tour last summer, they are decently sized. I liked the one bedroom more, but the studio wasn’t a shoebox. I actually love the whole building. Not everyones cup of tea of course, but its hip without being too pretentious.

        • Rich

          It has a zen fountain. I think it’s pretty pretentious.

          • skj84

            Why? What’s wrong with a Zen fountain?

  • anon

    Pretty funny that they don’t even stage it with a sofa or murphy bed.

  • James W.

    This place has the most exquisitely hipster-douchey website…

    • Rich

      Well, Justin likes it.

  • Hill Denizen

    If the photos are of the studio, then I’m surprised at how big that kitchen is. As someone who loves to cook, and whose current studio is essentially a kitchen with room for a bed (not really, but it is basically half kitchen), I’d love to live there, but I don’t think many studio dwellers share my sentiments.

  • bean

    I wonder how many people walk in/by this building thinking it is an anthropologie store.

    • maxwell smart

      It was actually the first thing that came to my mind when I saw the photo!

    • Pixie

      That was my first thought when I saw this ad. The outside of this building reminds me of the Anthropologie store in Friendship Heights.

    • greg

      as a local to the neighborhood and as someone who has never shopped at anthropologie, it took me a couple of times passing by to realize it wasn’t the clothing store

    • farragutst

      Exactly what i thought!

  • ArchaeoG

    I read this ad in the voice of Bill Hader’s character Stefan

    • bll

      that’s a good one. I read it as the voice of “the residences at the lofts at Kenny’s house in sodosopa” from south park.

  • MadMax

    This is a pretty sweet building. If I were in the mid-twenties bachelor life and new to DC I would definitely be scoping this place out.

  • ejh

    sweet place. and right by that new whole foods. chicks love whole foods.
