At PROYECTO, our mission is to provide superb craftsmanship while maintaining a positive team atmosphere.

 

GENERAL MANAGER

Abe Wortman oversees the development of every home renovation and guides clients through finding the design and budget to meet their goals.  Abe knows the value of service.  In his previous career, he was a trained French chef and later became a sommelier before embarking on a career in designer real estate. He found his passion for renovation while crafting spaces that are as practical as they are beautiful.  Now as general manager at PROYECTO, he brings his love of service and style to every project.  Like finding the right glass of wine, he helps each client find the path to their dream home, and build a project that suits their taste while meeting their budget and time-line goals.

DESIGNER

Audrey Kral brings her expert artistic eye to designs, her keen mind to problem solving, and her experienced memory for details to every step of the renovation process.  She is an oil painter who began her interior design career in 2002 when she fell in love with tile. She manages the whole project cycle and Audrey is our expert on finding clients the exact right tile and layout for bathroom and kitchen renovations. Her voluminous knowledge of the design industry stems from working closely with homeowners, designing showroom installations, buying tile, and visiting accessory design showcases around the US and Italy.
