Title

Willard InterContinental Washington coffered lobby ceiling

Description

Neal Prince and his department at InterContinental worked in close consultation with hired designer Sarah Tomerlin Lee to meticulously research the original condition of the hotel, salvaging pieces of original woodwork and plaster to create molds that could be used in the restoration process. Tin ceiling tiles that once adorned the lobby with state seals were reproduced by set designers from the Metropolitan Opera.
