The name comes from the cost of the renovation, which was $82 per square foot.

  BOFFO/Michael Bastian    The design draws inspiration from the paintings of Andrew Wyeth, in particular the use of perspective and point of view to tell a story and create intrigue - where you stand matters. The context of many of his paintings is also important: the light, and the New England Gothic architecture which is enriched through weathering, use, and decay. They start out as perfectly detailed and constructed structures that as they age, become less perfect. If you stand in the right place, you can see the light start to filter in through the cracks.
