Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office

Washington, DC

This 4.5-story, late 19th Century, 20,000-SF townhouse was renovated to serve as the home for the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office. Interior restoration included paint and floor stripping to reveal the building's original wood and moldings. The historical aspects of the building were enhanced by the introduction of custom furniture, carpets, and lighting that reflect the tradition and culture of Hong Kong.

The scope of work included terra cotta cataloging and replacement, brick and stone repair, installation of cost-effective materials as substitutes for the original and window integrity analysis and repair. A restoration program was developed and an owner's representative was consistently consulted during construction to insure direction of the project was consistent with expectations.

[The building] has been of enormous benefit to the representation of Hong Kong in Washington, DC."
