DuPont Circle – Washington, DC

Project Type: Remodel

Project Overview: The client wanted to update a house over 100 years old. The challenge lie within their desire to keep the integrity and character of the house intact while also updating key spaces, both functionally and aesthetically.

One of the biggest challenges for designer Samantha Friedman (who’s firm provided interior design services for the entire home) was the original masonry wood burning fireplace sitting in the middle of the bathroom, a key space in this remodel project. “The old wood fireplace would have sat directly in front of the bathtub” notes Friedman. Old, drafty and unattractive, the hearth was in need of a facelift.

The solution was a gas fireplace insert from Heat & Glo. For this project Friedman selected the COSMO gas fireplace insert. “We would never have been able to have the tub, the central focus of the space where it is” Friedman details.
