This lovely apartment was renovated in 2009 by Robert Gurney Architects. With one bedroom and one and a half baths, the dwelling offers 1,250 square feet of tastefully appointed spaces. The apartment is part of the Watergate complex in Washington DC, which is a group if five buildings designed by Italian architect Luigi Moretti, and erected between 1963 and 1972.

This particular flat is located on the 14th floor and was never renovated before. Robert Gurney Architects made some dramatic changes, as they stripped the interiors down to the essential infrastructure, exposing the pluming and electrical systems. The same happened to the original flooring, which was removed, leaving only the concrete slab.

With a renewed interior, the apartment now takes full advantage of its stunning views towards Potomac River. A carefully selected material and color palette gives the home a refined and subtle style. The end result is truly charming, with every inch of the apartment having been carefully redesigned.
