A protege of legendary interior designer Elsie de Wolfe, Schmidt transformed a former bohemian enclave at the edge of the East River into a set of luxury townhouses for New York high society. Sutton Place launched Schmidt's career as a neoclassical architect for New York's wealthiest families, including the Rockefellers.
