Project Overview

The original building, a 1922 landmark refrigeration warehouse remained an important element in the design of the Museum of The Bible, a 430,000 square foot building with a cost of approximately $400 million to build. Atop the building, a scroll of glazing clads a two-story addition housing a theater and ballroom, offer panoramic views of the U.S. Capitol and National Mall.

Of particular note on this project, a new replacement section of original handmade long shaped Kolumba clay bricks with multiple profiles made in Denmark were added to the existing exterior brick for design.
