From Archtiects, Fillat + Architecture, the Moxy DC hotel was designed as an homage to Mies Van Der Rohe, the architecture of the hotel is carefully proportioned and crafted with minimalist detailing. The hotel also incorporates the historic façades of three adjacent townhouses.
The 200-room hotel also features a rooftop bar which offers views of the iconic landmarks of DC, highlighting the Washington Monument and the Capitol Building. The retractable roof enclosure by OpenAire is adjacent to the bar and opens to the patio beyond creating an indoor/outdoor event space.

The aluminum-framed roof is supported by three sets of bi-folding doors, which will open to the adjacent terrace.
