STUDIOS’ redesign of the Madison Hotel creates a warm and inviting environment for one of Washington DC’s most distinguished hotels located in the Central Business District and steps from the White House. The entrance, lobby, restaurant, sidewalk cafes, and facade were re-imagined to create a comfortable escape for visitors and guests alike. The restaurant in particular was transformed into a high-end, rustic French-themed dining experience featuring a unique menu and outdoor, cafe-style seating.

In operation since 1962, the historic hotel has hosted every President and First Lady since Johnson, along with untold numbers of foreign and domestic political leaders and heads of state. 

The redesign of the five-star, 350-room hotel was accomplished in several phases. STUDIOS worked with the client and the city to provide design that was sensitive to the neighboring context and a unique addition to the public space.
