Le Diplomate

In collaboration with Shawn Hausman Design
Washington, D.C.
Spring 2013

Le Diplomate Restaurant is conceived as a French Brasserie, and pays tribute to Parisian café culture, evoking the style and feel of the brasseries of Paris down to the smallest detail. Le Diplomate Restaurant is located in a former abandoned dry cleaner. The location was chosen because the original 1920 's vintage stone fac̨ade evokes the look of a Brassiere, and the human scale of the building related well to use as a restaurant.

In 2014, Le Diplomate was honored with an Excellence in Historic Preservation award from the DC Preservation League. View the Mayor's announcement here.
