For example, in New York. What kind of building will attract you in the first place? The correct answer is an old, dilapidated motorcycle garage. It was its dilapidated walls that became the basis for the 5-storey dream house of our heroes - with huge bedrooms, a rooftop kitchen and a basketball hall. But most importantly, the authors of the project of this bright, unusual interior were the owners themselves - the Novogratz spouses. This is the first project of self-taught designers Robert andCourtney Novogarts (Robert and Cortney Novogratz), they made from scratch.
