The Mansion on O Street represents a future business paradigm- one in which there is maximum utility in every product, service, or idea that is sold.

The Mansion on O Street is a lesser-known Washington D.C. sight well worth visiting.  It is a collection of five connected brownstone houses complete with five floors and five secret doors.  The mansion is a combination hotel, extended stay residence, museum, antiques store, restaurant, and special event venue.

What is most interesting about the O Street Mansion is how every inch of space is utilized- every object in the mansion is for sale (even furniture), and unoccupied rooms become museum exhibits, miniature themed retail outlets and sites for meetings, parties and treasure hunts.
