Manhattan House Fabrication of moulding profiles, beams and incidental elements used throughout the newly gut-renovated apartments and public spaces at Manhattan House. Designed in 1950 by Skidmore Owings and Merrill and Landmarked in 2007, Manhattan House is widely regarded as an icon of post-war modernist architecture.
The Stanhope Decorative elements for lobbies, public spaces and model units of Rosario Candela’s historic Stanhope Apartment Hotel at 995 Fifth Avenue, gut-renovated under the direction of John Simpson & Partners (UK) in 2008.
Bowery Savings Bank Restoration of historic interior plasterwork at the original Bowery Savings Bank building at 130 Bowery; designed by McKim Mead & White and originally constructed in 1893. The space had suffered greatly from neglect and decay, but because the interior had been assigned Landmark status in 1994, we were commissioned to revive its damaged plasterwork, which involved replication, re-working and re-installation of many elements.
55 Wall Street, NYC Detailed survey and subsequent reparations to the historic coffered ceiling by McKim, Mead and White, 60’ above finished floor at 55 Wall Street, New York, NY; the original National City Bank lobby.
Central Synagogue Fire Restoration Recreation of all Moorish Revival plaster elements at Central Synagogue, 652 Lexington Avenue, New York after it had been gutted by fire. Due to limited documentation of the original interior, scaled modeling was achieved by reconciling historic photographs with ornamental remnants that we salvaged from the rubble.
Morris High School Auditorium Restoration and recreation of original decorative plaster elements in the auditorium of Morris High School, Bronx, NY. Constructed in 1897, the facility was originally named Peter Cooper High School and was, in fact, the very first high school constructed in Bronx as one of the original New York City public high schools created by the New York City school reform act of 1896. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places as of 1983, the school boasts a long list of notable alumni including former United States Secretary of State Colin Powell, United States Attorney Benito Romano, historian Vincent Harding, inventor Peter Karter, Representative Frank A. Oliver, television journalist Gabe Pressman, and newspaper columnist Victor Riesel.
The Jewish Museum Replication and re-proportioning of existing Francois I-style wall and ceiling mouldings and ornaments at New York’s Jewish Museum, 1109 Fifth Avenue; originally the mansion residence of Felix M. and Frieda Schiff Warburg, designed by Charles Pierrepont Henry Gilbert in 1908. Hyde Park restored and re-created many of the home's original plaster elements, which were used during an expansion under the direction of Architect Kevin Roche.
New York Fashion Center Re-creation of historic Romanesque Revival lobby elements in the New York Fashion Center Building at 525 Seventh Avenue under the direction of Architect George Ranalli. Originally completed in 1922 by Architect Henry Ives Cobb, the original lobby plasterwork had been so badly damaged by mid-century renovations that it required complete removal and replacement. Hyde Park faithfully re-created all plaster elements from the original architectural drawings and reference photographs.
