Eaton Workshop: The Mid-Century Modern Space With A Social Message ⇒ Just a few blocks away from the White House, in Washington D.C., and designed by Gachot Studios, the Eaton Workshop is the new hotel brand designed for change. Unrecognizable as a former Four Points Sheraton, the new 175,000-square-foot mid-century modern property positions itself as a community-oriented space rather than simply a boutique hotel.

“I love talking about how design can relate to social change,” states Katherine “Kat” Lo, humanitarian and founder of Eaton Workshop, a new global brand merging hospitality and social activism. “Yes, Eaton is a mental and spiritual refuge, but it’s also a place for cultural and intellectual stimulation.” No stranger to the world of hospitality, Katherine is the daughter of real-estate billionaire and Langham Hotels founder Lo Ka Shui.

Equipped with a radio station, 50-person cinema, coffee shop, full-service restaurant, rooftop bar, speakeasy, Radical Library, 370-member co-working space, and wellness centre with yoga, meditation and alternative treatments, Eaton Workshop intentionally invites both guests and locals to engage and build relationships.

“Given that D.C. has the history of so many social movements, and people still travel here annually to lobby and march to make a difference, I thought D.C. would be the perfect place to plant our flagship,” says Lo. “I want to offer Eaton as the home or living room, so to speak, to today’s contemporary movements.”

Lo and New York-based design firm Gachot Studios conceptualized public areas designed to facilitate the exchange of thoughts and ideas. Nods to the building’s past life as a printing press in the 1940s and bus station in the 1960s are sprinkled throughout the hotel, with the lobby’s wood-panelled walls, creamy leather banquettes, and mid-century modern lines inspired by a 1960s Swiss bus terminal.

Eaton hotels are planned for Hong Kong, Seattle, and San Francisco, which, along with the newly opened flagship location in Washington, D.C., all aim to create the physical conditions for guests to attain optimal self-actualization.
