“After living in the same pre-war apartment for over 18 years, I decided to do a complete renovation. I found Paula's ad in Luxe magazine. How lucky was I! Paula took over the project and completely gut renovated the apartment. Electrical, plumbing, adding a washer dryer, dealing with the condo board and buildings department, they even provided the mover! The apartment is fantastic, and all the work was completed on time and within the budget. Exceptional! When people say what torture a renovation is I say mine was a pleasure! Just call Paula!”
“Renovating an apartment in NYC is a daunting task and we were grateful to work with Paula and her team Her experience and attention to detail were crucial as she guided us every step of the way. The workmanship of her team is excellent. Paula stands behind her work and is always accessible even after the project is done. We love our new home, it’s everything we dreamed of and more!”
“I found Paula on Houzz. After interviewing and walking through the apartment with her and three other architects and design/build firms, I chose Paula. Throughout the time that we worked with her, I never regretted my choice. From that very first meeting, Paula paid attention to every single detail, every single thing that I mentioned that we wanted or needed. If you want someone to care about your renovation as much as you do, choose Paula and her team.”
