Robert Novogratz – Career

Early career

Before the couple started their own business, both were in other fields. They rented the bottom of their Manhattan building to get enough rent to pay their mortgage. But after a celebrity wanted to rent the top portion of the building for three times the mortgage, they moved downstairs to the garden apartment.

Renovation, Design
