AFTE R Borenstein kept decades of plasterwork and paint, opting to sand it down and seal it rather than remove it completely. “If you look closely on the walls, there are old patterns of the building paint that have a beautiful texture of color,” he says. “They tell you where the town hall stopped and the town garage started. It’s literally a story on walls.”
