This 19th Century brownstone underwent a full gut renovation. We partnered with Frances Mildred architects to restore the home and honour as many historic details as possible. In addition to repairs and restoration work, the home was reconfigured with a new floor layout better suited to the busy lifestyles of the modern urban family.
