When this DC couple wanted to downsize from their very traditional home, they purchased two units at Watergate South and asked Ritter & Associates to design an environment that retained many of the traditional elements that they loved, all the while infusing the space with an updated, urban edge.
After calling for a complete demolition of all interior partitions and finishes, Ritter was convinced that she needed to express the building’s curve within the space. The spine of the unit curves with the building and one is continuously reminded that they are in the Watergate. Many of the clients’ traditional upholstered pieces were restyled and updated.
Once completed, the Watergate condominium felt like home with the urbanity that the couple was looking for.
