The homeowner admired this Washington neighborhood for many years and jumped at the opportunity to purchase a brownstone property. But the interior had been divided into five apartment units and required a total remodel to create a comfortable home.
Architect Lisa Rigazio's design created an open, modern feel to the former apartment building while maintaining the historical character of the old brownstone.
