Our Frances Collection
Frances was envisioned with art as one of its integral components. From the exterior’s sculptural pedestrian and garage gates, the sweeping 3-D garage mural, to the undulating sculptures fronting the entrance and hovering over the courtyard's reflecting pool, bespoke fine art greets both residents and visitors. Abstract contemporary art and digital collage photography replete with movement and color complement the lobby and corridor interiors, and together with the striking sculptures and painterly mural, complete the carefully curated art collection elegantly showcased in the entirety of Frances.
Sharing the avant-garde vision of the developers - that of an art infused luxury condominium - our design team composed of Portland-based art consultant Liz Contag, Washington D.C.-based interior designer Elizabeth Raftopoulos, and OTAK’s architects closely collaborated to create an iconic and memorable artistic narrative throughout Frances, meticulously adding character and dimension to every single space.

“Art has immeasurable power beyond its ability to elevate and memorialize spaces by adding depth and character. My vision was to provide a tangible aesthetic and dynamic experience through a cohesively curated Art Collection. Our Frances collection tells an incredible story, inevitably inviting people to interact while promoting a sense of community."
