The perfect example of a “diamond in the rough”. And I mean rough! At nearly 100 years old this building had great bones, but it had been severely neglected with extensive water damage and decades of poor design decisions.
The goal was to bring the interior back to what it was originally intended to be without making it look “new”. Every design decision was based upon maintaining the integrity of this amazing structure. Where I could I salvaged original features. Refinishing the original hardwood floors in the sanctuary, cleaning and restoring a simply spectacular limestone fireplace surround and replacing the “all wrong” 1960’s light fixtures in the sanctuary with pendants that look nearly identical to those that hung there when the building was erected.
Some of the new features include a limestone entrance floor, warm rich paints, used in all the right places, and new flooring that is so perfect you would swear it had always been there. A unique, challenging and really fulfilling project. I am proud to have helped in restoring this great structure.
