Savvy Schoolhouse Reno

Original 1914 doors and reclaimed elm flooring are lovely accompaniments to century-old bookshelves lining the hallway.

Thanks to designer Kate Zeidler and architect Bill Dewson, this light-filled and contemporary condo — a former Catholic high school dormitory — balances the best of new and old. The playful Paul Smith rug and contemporary art, lined salon-style along the walls, provide a playful, modern touch to the space.
