About Westlight

A Unique Architectural Masterpiece

Westlight, DC’s newest upscale condominium property, showcases a unique and dynamic aesthetic designed by architect Enrique Norten of TEN Arquitectos. The Mexico City-based firm incorporated exemplary urban design, architecture, and landscape elements into the project. A cantilevered glass building facade bathes the interior in natural sunlight, while floor-to-ceiling windows frame vibrant cityscapes.

Designing a Home, Not Just a Model

Braunohler Design Associates and Josh Hildreth Interiors fitted Westlight’s designer model unit. They made a special effort to use original local art, designer furniture, textiles, and fabrics, creating a space that feels like a home rather than a typical model unit. The designers imagined a buyer relocating from a large suburban house to enjoy city life.

A Contemporary Look with a Soft Touch

The buyer envisioned by the designers sought a contemporary look that was soft, serene, and welcoming, rather than starkly modern. To achieve this, the palette pairs charcoal, grey, and cream wood finishes with soft green, watery aqua, and taupe paint and textile selections. This combination creates a soothing and inviting atmosphere throughout the space.

Luxurious Amenities and Unique Accessories

The model unit features an array of luxurious amenities, including fabrics by Pierre Fray and Romo, bathroom accessories from Waterworks, and furniture from Neirmann Weeks and Barry Dixon by Arteriors. The space is further enhanced by artwork from local artists David Bell, John Matthew Moore, Lisa Tureson, and Joseph Johnson, as well as rugs from Stark. Designer lighting fixtures and unique antique African and Asian accessories add the finishing touches to this exquisite home.
