Oh, yes, expect to see a few recognizable political faces in the building since it is home to some well-know lawmakers.

Wanting to combine comfort and versatility, the owner worked with architects Donald Lococo and Wayne Good to re-design the layout of the unit.

He wanted a light-filled open layout reminiscent of a New York loft space.  Unit 5F also happens to be one of the largest floor plans in the building, which gave the architects and designers plenty to work with.  To finish his design of the home, the owner enlisted designer Darryl Carter.  A pivotal component of his overall design scheme were the floors, which are reclaimed barn wood purposely left rough and painted white, adding a “graceful yet casual base,” as he puts it.
