From kitchens and in-law suites to sunroom additions and whole-house renovations, the beautiful lines, impeccable finishes and meticulous attention to detail of an OPaL historic or custom renovation can be yours, using our architect or your own.

A Capitol Hill garage that fixed some of our nation's first automobiles. A chapel designed by the first African American to have his own architectural practice. And a handful of significant turn-of-the-century alleyways. OPaL's work with DC's exacting historic boards has resulted in the brilliant metamorphosis of many stunning examples of our nation's capitol's history. As a result, we have built a reputation—and an awards wall—marked by breathtaking examples of historic renovations that retain the outer vestiges of the past, while incorporating inspired modern sensibilities within. Trust us to transform your treasured piece of city history into a masterwork that spans the ages.


“OPaL not only builds beautiful homes that are thoughtfully designed and constructed, but they operate with unprecedented professionalism and pride in their craftsmanship. Our experience has been the BEST, and coming from an experienced interior designer, I didn't know I could be "wowed" on the subject I study daily.”
