“Can’t repeat the past?…Why of course you can!” ― F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby
Once in a while, we have the honor to come face to face with history. The owners of this 1920's house, aim to create an environment that's more than just a luxurious space, more than just a place of serenity and comfort. They set out to create an experience, a presence of history that would be with them every morning as they wake. To respectfully add modern comforts, and to return this beautiful home to its original intent. We are glad to be here alongside to help with this amazing journey, Great Gatsby here we come!
Take a look at some before and after below. See in-depth process details in the video.
