Ernesto Santalla, PLLC—formerly Studio Santalla—transformed this Chevy Chase basement into a midcentury oasis for a client wishing to return his home to its original style.  The home office combines Santalla’s contemporary approach with mid-century modern style to achieve a clean, MadMen aesthetic. Custom floating desks with marble tops,inspired by mid-century office furniture, provide ample working space for a thriving law practice. Santalla and his team designed a stunning and functional wood and chrome storage unit, complimented by a Florence Knoll Credenza and and Knoll Table Desk. Terrazzo floors throughout provide continuity to the family room, where an asymmetrical fireplace wall with dramatic santos rosewood panels conceals a flush millwork door.
