Washington, DC (July 27, 2014)The DC Preservation League celebrates the rehabilitation of yet another historic rehabilitation—1216 18th Street. Originally built about 1880, this address now houses “Sauf Haus,” a new Bier Garten.

Located in the heart of Dupont Circle Historic District, this nineteenth century Mediterranean-style commercial and residential building has housed a variety of local businesses including the architecture firm of Rodier & Kundzin, the Manoukian Rug Store and most recently The Guitar Shop.

DCPL Executive Director Rebecca Miller notes that, “the addition is a thoughtful solution that solves two design challenges: hiding a current eyesore – the very visible and large mechanical equipment on the first floor roof along Jefferson Place– and creating additional space for commercial use at the third floor level.”

HISTORY
1880 – Construction
1887 – Robert T. Edes, Doctor, American Neurological Association
