Project Embassy Row

A Modernist Marvel
A DC landmark hotel gets a thoughtful overhaul

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."

refresh with bold colors and patterns. Right:
The lobby boasts a chic stone floor and metallic
cherry blossom wallcovering.
