Demonet Building

-A A +A
1846, architect unknown. 1983, Skidmore, Owings and Merrill. Connecticut Ave. and M St. NW

Through the survival of even such modest structures as a former candy factory, the Demonet Building, Connecticut Avenue remains a distinctive thoroughfare. The Demonet Building is a pivot at the meeting of Rhode Island Avenue, M Street, and Connecticut Avenue. Skidmore, Owings and Merrill incorporated the Demonet Building into the corner of a larger development that included a new office block to the rear. The old and the new are joined together with steel beams, which replaced the floor joists of the old building and are attached to the floors of the new.
