The Gate Project

April 13th, 2013  |  Leave a comment

Without restoration most of the beautiful treasures of the past would remain in the past, functionally and aesthetically. Over the past ten years we’ve received a handful of projects that are best described as “the most glamorous form of recycling” one can imagine. We take antiques from the 19th century and splash them with 21st century technology to give them the convenience 200 years of technology provides while maintaining the bold look only hand crafted pieces obtain.

A few years ago a client came to us with a large restoration idea involving a gate built in Germany in the late 1800s. The idea was to restore the gate, beef it up, give it the functionality a modern gate produces, and install it.
