Lucy Moses Award

Project Description:
The entire parapet was replaced in kind, to address extensive masonry deterioration – cracked, spalled and displaced terra cotta and bulging brick masonry as a result of corroding steel within the masonry walls. The off-street parapet was also replaced to address the deteriorated brick masonry, which was the cause of water infiltration into the interior of the building. Existing elements were carefully documented. All replacement masonry was selected to match existing materials in shape, color and texture. Architectural pre-cast concrete and glass-fiber-reinforced concrete were used in reconstructing the ornate parapet. The arched Guastavino-tiled ceiling in the Tillary Street loggia, which had been damaged by water infiltration from above was fully restored. The entire first layer of tile was replaced. This project won the Lucy Moses Award for Landmark restoration in 2019.
