Project Statement:

Anchoring a corner of Reston Town Center, The Signature is a luxury, mixed-use apartment community featuring 22,000 square feet of interior amenities, 14,000 square feet of exterior amenities and a Balducci’s gourmet grocery. Reston Town Center is a mature planned community in Northern Virginia that is welcoming, walkable and lively. With both office buildings and multifamily strategically located, it is a live-work haven. Residents that choose Reston seek an urban lifestyle in a suburban location.

Surrounded by Virginia countryside, the community has its own metro station (with another under construction) and is 10 minutes from Dulles airport. Residents can walk to nearby restaurants, attend art exhibits at the Greater Reston Arts Center or at the gallery in the Signature that partners with GRAC, enjoy open air concerts, attend wine tastings and shop, all within walking distance. Branded to offer residents a unique lifestyle and support the Reston community, The Signature name speaks to the individual and how he or she can each make this multifamily residence his or her own. With vast community social and service amenities, each resident is encouraged to put his or her own signature on his or her living experience.

The design team’s priority was ensuring that each interior space blends seamlessly with its adjacent exterior courtyard terrace, garden or deck. Be it the main lobby, the seventh-floor sports lounge (that leads out to the pool deck), or the sky-top fitness center, the connection to the outdoors and the stunning views of the Virginia countryside were emphasized throughout the building. Recognizing that a connection to the outdoors and social engagement is critical to well-being, the team’s objectives was the indoor-outdoor connection and the creation of social spaces that draw people together. Through natural materials, views, a biophilic design approach as well as great space planning, the building has become a sanctuary for its residents.
