28/04/2020 - The CityCenterDC is the central feature in one of the largest urban redevelopment projects in Washington DC’s recent history.
Foster + Partners master-plan breaks the site down into smaller, pedestrian blocks that bridge new connections between diverse downtown communities: the historic and predominantly residential neighborhoods to the north, and the mainly commercial office developments to the south.
 
This way the project reawakened the whole area with new housing and commercial opportunities, designed to be human-scaled. The gateway to the plaza is a glass ‘jewel box’ containing two elevators, while a park in the north-west corner of the site includes a landscaped pool and fountains, and is intersected by diagonal pathways, which echo the pattern of alleyways of the European cities.
 
The whole area is designed to achieve the maximum degree of energy efficiency: the landscape, commercial and residential buildings are oriented according to the pattern of the sun and incorporate green roofs that absorb and recycle 100 percent of the rainwater. Many of the apartments also feature large balconies and terraces, and are oriented to maximize sunlight.
 
The design meets the primary user needs and reproduces an environment that immerses the residents in city life, also providing them commercial and social opportunities. Therefore the structure has many amenities such as a fitness pavilion with individual and group class workout stations, a yoga studio, private outdoor spaces and rooftop public areas, including a dog park, outdoor kitchens and dining spaces, a WiFi cafeteria, a swimming pool and green terraces with solarium and water games.

In these environments dedicated to the outdoor life Poggesi comes into play, specifically with Poggesi Usa, the overseas partner: thanks to its recognized elegant, functional and not intrusive qualities, ONE has been chosen to furnish the lounge spaces of this project.
 
Realized with the traditional aluminum structure and varnished with polyester-based thermosetting powders coats to ensure the highest resistance over time, ONE comes in a navy blue cloth, entirely sewn with cotton thread to ensure the highest waterproofing. The pole is lateral and it perfectly integrates with the surrounding environment.
 
Thanks to the patented technology of its opening system, One is the most functional and easy to use umbrella of Poggesi. In fact the endless screw system considerably reduce the number of actions that the user has to carry out during the opening and closing stage of the umbrella, allowing a better dexterity and decreasing the resistance involved by a winch mechanism.
 
All the Poggesi are designed to give comfort and an elegant and distinctive touch to any outdoor space: versatile, multi-directional and easy to use, these parasol are protected by a locking system that maintains any desired position and equipped with a telescopic opening and closing system.
