Brie Husted, 1973-2015
Washington City Paper, Nov. 25, 2015
Bridget “Brie” Husted, an architect who lived in Petworth and designed popular D.C. restaurants like El Centro D.F., Domku, Masa 14, and Southern Efficiency, as well as numerous private residences, died on Nov. 1. She was 41 years old. Her uncle, Steve Cochran, remembers her as whip-smart, driven, and magnetic: “There was absolutely no one else I so loved spending time with.”
A D.C. native, Husted grew up in Upper Northwest and attended Blessed Sacrament and Stone Ridge schools. She studied architecture at the Rhode Island School of Design and graduated in 1996. A study-abroad program in Rome was formative, deepening her interest in drawing and in the architectural qualities of light.
