We approached this gut renovation with an eye toward balance. While the exterior and front entry of the house retain historical details of the original architecture, the rest of the home is a minimalist retreat composed of clean lines and a neutral materials palette of glass, plaster and leather floors. With a focus on comfort and warmth, we punctuated the space with industrial fixtures, walnut-framed furniture, and suiting fabrics from Saville Row. Dreamy light filters effortlessly through this urban retreat.
