It’s not that rare to see old buildings redesigned and renovated but usually they’re not in such bad shape. This used to be a dilapidated building so it was almost a ruin.
Then designer Alexandros Washburn found it and he fell in love with it instantly. He bought the three story brick and stone house and decided to make it his family home. Not long after they all moved in the whole house got flooded with water from the Hudson and East Rivers. It was a bad night but the designer managed to see the good in this disaster.
