New Project - Washington Hilton

July 6, 2016

When constructed in 1965, the Washington Hilton had the largest column free ballroom in the entire city of Washington DC.   Designed by noted Architect William Tabler, the hotel featured a double arch design and gracious gathering spaces unlike any other at the time.  The hotel hosts the White House Press Correspondent’s Dinner, the National Prayer Breakfast and has previously hosted concerts by the Rolling Stones and Jimi Hendrix.

KKAD was recently awarded the task of renovating the hotel’s lobby which features three restaurants, a lobby bar, a lounge, and all of the standard amenities associated with a full service Hilton Hotel.  Our team drew inspiration from the architecture of the building and the mid-century pedigree of the hotel.  The proposed design will include a variety of atomic age details including wood paneling, bold patterns, and intricate screen partitions.
