Tilden Gardens

Washington, DC

Blackburn Architects was hired in 2014 to provide ongoing architectural services for façade repairs and mortar testing for the historic, six-building Tilden Gardens complex. One of the “grand dames” of upper Connecticut Avenue, the c. 1930, Tudor-style buildings are set among landscaped gardens unrivaled elsewhere in the city.

Constructed of red brick and trimmed with Indiana limestone, Blackburn Architects is inspecting each building, and each has its own scope of work, its own budgetary restrictions, and its own phasing schedule.
