design for a modern apartment flat in a prestigious building in
Georgetown is articulated by carefully modulated floor finishes,
strategic disposition of ceiling panels and the use of bold color
elements to create a flow of space and organization that belies the
large program and expansive floor plan on one level. Victoria Bingham,
of Buon Fresco executed a series of Venetian plaster wall elements in a
bold but soft orange which ties everything together � she was a pleasure
to work with and the final results were stunning.� Robert Dudka, AIA, Richard Williams Architects
