The couple from California wanted us to create their East Coast pied-a-terre so that it would be nothing short of dazzling. The first challenge, how to turn this rare, spacious floor-through apartment, that had been left untouched for decades into a 21st century home. When the clients informed us that they would be traveling the world for work during the majority of construction we caught our breath but didn’t miss a beat. Their itinerary became as integral to our project planning as the timely ordering of construction materials. How else to keep them abreast of steel beams being craned in through windows in Boston while they were in London. Or sharing the excitement long distance, of the final installation of an exquisite ten-foot piece of Carrara marble into what would be their master bath. On this project our skills using digital communication tools proved as valuable as any used in construction.
