Capella Hotel Received a SARA National Design Award

SARA National Design Award

Winstanley Architects is proud to announce that the Capella Hotel has received a SARA National Design Award.

The redevelopment of 1050 31st Street, NW, entailed a conversion of the property from office to hotel use. The project was initially conceived for the Capella Hotel flag and provided an ultra-luxury hotel offering suitable for the top tier of business and leisure travelers, a significantly underserved segment in Washington, DC.

The property includes 48 rooms, premium dining and lounge facilities, as well as a private board room for hotel guests, and is located on arguably the most desirable site in Georgetown, a market filled with historic structures and known for scarce development opportunities.

A complete renovation of the core and shell including new elevators, new mechanical equipment, and totally new finishes on the interior was accomplished on an accelerated schedule in just under 18 months from pencil on paper to occupant-ready opening.
