Today we’re talking about design trends … DC’s emerging neighborhoods …. CORE’s work at DC’s fabulous new Wharf … what goes into working with developers and creative people – chef/owners and restaurateurs, that is – to understand their wants, needs and visions for new spaces and then to translate all that into seamlessly flowing, innovative interiors that augment and compliment the vision, the menu and more.
