tecture, Washington, D.C.
 
THE MUSE: Take the Moxy formula, public spaces that
encourage community, and give it authentic visual interest,
city references and textural depth. Subdivide the public areas
into multifunctional volumes for work and play. "We were able
to provide the guests with areas that are conducive to play/
socialize or work/quiet spaces to plug in and zone out," says
David Ashen, executive creative director, dash design.
 
THE MAGIC: Digging past politics for a more actionable design

THE MESSAGE: "Make pizza, not war," according to the stacked boxes
over the seating piece. That's tongue-in-cheek (and mouthwatering), but
this property proves that playfulness can be G-rated-sometimes.

narrative. "Art and artifacts were specifically designed to bring to
life another not-so-well-known story about D.C., which is that it
established one of the earliest bike share systems. Clever nods to
this are found throughout the property," says Ashen. Reclaimed
wood around the bar helps warm up the look.
 
THE MAVERICK MOVE: Light 'em up, oh, oh. This space takes the
idea of "layered lighting" to another level with complex arrangements in the main lobby that feature individual bulbs hung at
varying heights. That continues around the bar, giving the space
between it and the wall an indoor/outdoor feeling. Sconces on
the edges of the bar provide "task" (assuming choosing a drink or
checking in could be considered work) lighting.
