5th St. Lounge

When the owner asked for a maintenance-free fence as a low-cost solution that would make a creative statement in their backyard, we set about delivering a solution that disrupted the plain lines of the space while contributing to the entertainment utility.

5th Street Lounge is a custom, hybrid fence and bench installation in the Penrose neighborhood of Arlington, Virginia.

Standing at 6’-4”, this 25’ white cellular PVC lumber installation includes 8 shelves and an integrated bench that can hold up to 6 people. The structure is supported by 2-5/8” steel fence posts and heavy-duty fence rail connectors. A distinct patterned affect was achieved by installing the PVC planks at a 22.5º angle, which was derived from a typicalscarf joint used in other carpentry applications.
