Join the ICAA for a members-only exclusive tour and reception of the historic Decatur House, the National Center for White House History, on Tuesday, July 16that 6pm. Franck & Lohsen architects was selected to renovate the first-floor foyer, 2 parlors, the back stairwell, and the 2nd floor landing. Their mission was to restore the historic structure while updating the space for receptions and meetings. Antique furnishings and artifacts from the house were retained while historic pieces were pulled from National Trust storage. Modern reproductions were selected as infill which would hold up to their high use. Franck & Lohsen recently received a 2019 John Russell Pope Award in the Historic Preservation category for their work on this project.
