Flat at 3303 Water StreetWashington, DC
The clients, a couple that for years have been living in Baltimore, MD., bought this apartment at 3303 Water street, by the Potomac river in Georgetown. The intent was to use it as a weekend getaway to access Washington’s cultural events, restaurants, museums and the Kennedy Center plays and concerts. They approached FORMA to explore together how to bring the 2 bedroom/2 bath, 1400sf apartment to its potential. The space was tight- and our goal was to create architecture that transformed the space in a way that felt more open and also accommodated their lifestyle and taste. The apartment faces the Georgetown Canal, and has beautiful views of historic Georgetown. Stone floors with radiant heat, the latest in lighting and AV technology, new kitchen and dining area, new double-sided fireplace with TV facing both the living area and the lounge area, a second bedroom that in the evening becomes a delightful guest bedroom for the visiting grandkids- with 100 fiber optic lights to mimic a starry sky. The Master bedroom suite, with a leather headboard and smokey mirrors that extend the perception of space and a new Master bath with a large steam-bath/shower make their pied-a-terre a favorite getaway.
"David and I learned of FORMA Design through houzz. Upon meeting Andreas, and looking at his work, we knew we found the best firm in town. Not only did Andreas bring his architectural taste, and expertise to our apartment in DC-but his attention to color, detail, and interior design was innovative while keeping our personal taste his priority. The project was finished in a timely fashion, and we are very happy with everything."-
