combined gate and custom lighting installation

Many of the projects that Leo enjoys most begin with found and recovered objects that are re-purposed, mixing antique aesthetic with newer construction to redefine a space, entry-way or sidewalk. One of his recent projects took Leo to north Philadelphia for a combined gate and custom lighting installation.
