In Progress  |  The Callista  |  Durham, NC

The Callista is a 6-story, 4-unit condo building planned for 802 Washington Street near the intersection of West Geer Street in Downtown Durham. The four units include three 2,225-square-foot condos and a 2-story, 3,305-square-foot penthouse. For more information and to contact the listing broker, visit thecallista.com.

The building is sited on a narrow property just north of the old ballpark in an area characterized by former industrial buildings adapted for apartments, restaurants and bars. The design reflects this context yet proposes a modern interpretation of the neighborhood. The building’s primary material is a deep charcoal-hued brick that echoes the nearby warehouse district. The glass curtainwall on three facades is designed with both clear glass, to offer views to the city center, and glass layered with a ceramic frit, to protect from solar glare. Wood accentuates the front facade and the balconies facing Washington Street.
