The American Red Cross headquarters is one of three historic buildings comprising Red Cross Square, between the Corcoran Museum of Art and the Daughters of the American Revolution building. The circa-1917 building is known for its dramatic exterior, constructed of white marble with classic Ionic columns. The restoration, designed by Shalom Baranes Associates, completly modernized the four-story, 40,000-square-foot structure. Improvements included window replacement, fan coil enclosure restoration on the ballroom level, marble restoration, and modernization of the mechanical, security, telephone, data, and audio/visual systems on all floors. The renovation of the ballroom included a new stage, cafeteria, and acoustic and audio/visual systems.
