EUROPEAN UNION US DELEGATION OFFICES
Washington, DC

The European Union (EU)’s new, 11-floor workplace in Washington, DC houses offices, meeting and conference spaces, a café, and videoconferencing facilities.

Upon entering one is greeted by a number of exhibit pieces relating to the EU its history and member nations.   A backlit, glass wall displays a timeline of key dates and events, and wall-mounted, illuminated glass fins represent EU members’ flags. CBBLD also worked closely with the Architect on the design of a “mobile ceiling,” which lowers four stories for easy lighting maintenance, in the stair atrium.
