Project Embassy Row A Modernist Marvel A DC landmark hotel gets a thoughtful overhaul By Alia Akkam Photography by Greg Powers Studio A controversial Modernist building dating from 1970, the Embassy Row Hotel is a Washington, DC landmark. So, when tasked with its contemporary revamp last year, Rockville, Maryland-based HVS Design faced a number of obstacles "that presented themselves post-design and documentation. It's an older property. Many things had to be adjusted in the field and on the fly," explains Christine Shanahan, managing director of design. "However, the entire team worked hard to ensure that the integrity and intent were maintained. We like to think we turned the challenges into character, in keeping with the concept of a neighborhood place." Top: The 1970s-era Embassy Row hotel gets a refresh with bold colors and patterns.
