The Capitol Conference Center at American Psychological Association

L1000999_Revised2Recently, OvS design staff joined Principal Lisa Delplace and Designer Stacilyn Feldman at the newly completed Capitol View Conference Center at the American Psychological Association in Washington, DC. Lisa and Stacilyn led a tour of two new green roof spaces that they designed for the new facility. The two roof terraces are distinct in character: one provides entertaining space and unobstructed views of the Capitol dome, while the other provides lounge seating and broad, lush plantings.

The two terraces were developed in conjunction with the construction of the Capitol View Conference Center, which Gensler designed.

Peconic Land Trust: Through Farms and Fields

PLT 2014On Sunday August 3, 2014, patrons of the Peconic Land Trust gathered at Ward’s Point on Shelter Island for Through Farms and Fields, an annual country supper. This year, the supper honored the conservation philanthropy of Barbara Slifka, OvS’ longtime friend and client. Following cocktail hour in the historic gardens, Chef Bryan Futerman’s supper was served under a tent overlooking Sag Harbor as the sun set.  

BEACH Magazine Editor-In-Chief Cristina Cuomo served as Mistress of Ceremonies. Famed playwright and director Robert Wilson delivered a spirited and inspiring “oratory collage” in tribute to Barbara Slifka’s generosity to the Peconic Land Trust, and all the institutions she supports.

Congratulations to Barbara from all of us at OvS!
