This historic turn-of-the-century bank building on Capitol Hill has been renovated as a private residence. The building’s limestone exterior, ornate metal cornice work and original decorative plaster work were restored. Within this restored space a starkly modern steel structure was inserted. Custom cherry cabinets designed in a simple Shaker style bridge the gap between the traditional and modern elements of the house. Integral with the design of the house is the owner’s modern painting and ceramic collection.
This project was awarded an AIA Honor Award for Design Excellence and was selected Project of the Year for the Builder’s Choice Design and Planning Awards. It also was featured in Architectural Digest and was selected for the magazine’s special “100 Years of Design” issue. It appeared in the Washington Post Sunday Magazine, the premier issue of Residential Architect magazine, in several garden and interior design books and in a number of television series.
