Residences at Rio is 136-unit multifamily building located in the active Rio at Washingtonian Center in Gaithersburg, MD. Minutes from I-270 and walkable to retail and entertainment, Residences at Rio is in a suburban renter’s dream location. SR/A was hired to renovate the two outdated lobby spaces in the building to ensure they complemented the other desirable aspects of the property.
The design in the main lobby incorporates both natural materials and elegant fixtures, giving the space a timeless feeling of welcome and ease. In the secondary lobby, the design activates what used to be just a walk-through space to parking facilities, into a useable amenity. The banquette and counter seating provide touch-down areas where residents can work remotely, while the custom built-in shelving, filled with antiques and unique treasures, gives the space a cozy feeling of home.
