DBA is excited to receive the 2019 Merit Award for Excellence in Historic Preservation for the Lockkeeper’s House from AIA VA! The jury noted that the “exterior, interior, and landscape are all well executed – it feels like welcoming back a lost treasure.”

The Lockkeepers H

ouse is the oldest structure on the National Mall, and it’s a delight to now come upon it fully restore. The Lockkeeper’s House has great meaning to the DC community and the country and it now fittingly serves as a gateway to Constitution Gardens.
