Quaker House: Work and Office Spaces in Dupont Circle

We offer a peaceful oasis in Dupont Circle that will nurture your productivity and creativity.

About Us

Friends Meeting of Washington, a progressive nonprofit Quaker religious community in Washington DC’s Dupont Circle neighborhood, is known for its event and meeting spaces. However, we also rent a number of office spaces to a small community of diverse organizations aligned with our community’s mission and with Quaker values.

Our property consists of several historic buildings and gardens that have been recently renovated. The building housing the office spaces, known as Quaker House, is the former home (and associated carriage house) of a diplomat that was built in 1924. This building is now connected via an internal corridor to the adjacent Quaker meeting house that was built in 1930.

Other spaces in the facility are rented for private events and conferences while also continuing to be used for Quaker religious services and connected activities throughout the week. 

 

See below for available spaces.
 

Shared Work Space (Coworking) Options

Should a permanent office space not be what you are looking for, please reach out to us regarding possible “hot desk” options at our facility on weekdays.
