ZGF Architects LLP
ZGF Architects LLP is the prime architect for new office space at the new U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Headquarters Consolidation Project at St. Elizabeth’s Hospital. Working under the U.S. General Services Administration, ZGF designed the following DHS components: Federal Emergency Management Agency, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and Transportation Security Administration.
This project is part of the overall DHS headquarters consolidation project, the Washington metropolitan area's largest federal project since construction of the Pentagon in 1943.
Located at St. Elizabeth’s, a National Historic Landmark and former mental health hospital that was previously operated by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the project is dispersed between the historic West Campus and a new East Campus. The two campuses are linked via a below-grade connector. The program includes the design of four new office buildings, the addition to an existing historic building, three parking structures, mail sort facility, cafeteria, and child care center.
