Savvy Schoolhouse Reno
Original 1914 doors and reclaimed elm flooring are lovely accompaniments to century-old bookshelves lining the hallway.
A crumbling, 2,040-square-foot dormitory in an old Catholic high school becomes a dramatic gallery for books and contemporary art in this clever renovation. This light-filled and contemporary condo carefully balances the best of new and old: The original 1914 doors and reclaimed elm flooring are lovely accompaniments to the century-old bookshelves lining the hallway. By contrast, the playful Paul Smith rug and contemporary art lined salon-style along the walls provide a playful, modern touch to the space.
