The Doodle light fixture hangs in the Skytop Suite and was designed by Simone Micheli for Terzani. It is inspired by the winding pathways of our lives, and each LED bulb can be placed anywhere on the piece.
Steve Cassell, chief operating officer for Four Points LLC, believes Shaw is “a place where people want to live right now.” It’s why the firm chose to build its new Perla boutique condo project here. “We’ve watched the evolution of Shaw for 10 years and felt the time was right,” he says. “The building is surrounded by beautiful townhomes, and a critical mass of retail amenities has arrived in recent years. [We wanted] to deliver a world-class building that takes Shaw one step further.” Designed by Phil Esocoff of Gensler and WDG architecture, with interior design by HapstakDemetriou+, the nine-story LEED Gold-certified property has 66 units priced from the $600,000s to the $2 millions. Floor-to-ceiling windows with MechoShades and Italian cabinetry outfit the residences. The Skytop Suite tops things off. The rooftop entertaining area offers panoramas of DC, and boasts a prep kitchen with a quartz coffee and drink bar, a communal table with charging stations and more. Those who might typically be drawn to the West End are interested. “We [think] we’re bringing something very special to the market.” 810 O St. NW, perladc.com
