Last week, BBGM hosted a successful Open House event, joined by past and present clients and consultants to celebrate the momentous occasion. The internationally renowned architecture and interior design firm unveiled their new DC office design to the general public at the event, held on Thursday, March 10th, 2016. Despite competing with the regional excitement over the ongoing 2016 ACC Basketball Tournament, the event enjoyed a wonderful turnout of attendees. The BBGM DC office was joined by colleagues from their MONOGRAM Hospitality Interiors team, as well as visitors from their Scottsdale design studio. Catered hors d'oeuvres and professional mixologists provided a fantastic blend of sophistication and indulgence. Guests enjoyed the delightful food & beverage selection, while networking with industry peers and touring the all-new BBGM office and design studio.
