1 day ago Perhaps the greatest masterpiece of Beaux-Arts style architecture in the United States, the @NYPL was designed by Carrere & Hastings, and opened in 1911. It is one of the largest public library systems in the United States and one of the largest research library systems in the world. The Rose Reading Room is the key symbolic space of the library, about the size of a football field and comparable to the great European libraries.
Having first completed restoration work at the New York Public Library’s Rose Reading Room in 1999, EverGreene was honored to return to the Carrere & Hastings-designed building for another restoration project at the Rose Reading Room in 2014.
EverGreene’s most recent work was instigated by a rosette falling in the middle of the night. Following this incident, the New York Public Library decided it was time to fully assess the historic room. EverGreene was asked to provide a historic finishes investigation and report, repairing the ceiling facades, repairing all decorative plaster elements and securing the iconic plaster rosettes. The Rose Reading Room reopened in October 2016.

5 days ago EverGreene conservators cleaned and conserved extant section of @broadwayboston proscenium, dome, and stair lobby murals containing classical figures and sky backgrounds as well as repainted in situ lost sections of murals to recreate original intent. We restored the water-damaged interior finishes and ornamental plaster, and additionally, developed a historically appropriate palette and completed decorative painting to maintain historic character.
Conservators also conserved, cleaned and reinstalled the dutch-metal gilding and glazing throughout the ceiling mural, restoring it to its classic grandeur.

1 week ago In collaboration with RRTL Architects EverGreene developed a new decorative scheme sympathetic to the architecture of the Cathedral Of The Immaculate Conception. EverGreene created the color and decorative finishes palette, reinstated lost sanctuary artwork, designed new architecturally harmonious murals, and consolidated and repaired flat and ornamental plaster.
The decorative scheme draws the eye upward, toward the sanctuary semi-dome. In the side niches are murals of the Procession of Saints presenting offerings and gifts. Brocade patterning in the niches includes symbols of the Rose of Sharon, Fleur de Lys, and Tree of Life. The overall color palette was derived from permanent elements including stained glass windows and marble furnishings

Here's one our favorite exposure window reveals from @prattlibrary Room 206. Here's an image to help you enjoy spring :) In March of 2017, EverGreene completed an investigation of decorative finishes located in the Team Learning and Leadership Room (Room 206) at the Enoch Pratt Free Library in Baltimore, Maryland. The investigation included exposing underlying decorative finishes, taking paint samples for off-site microscopic analysis, and matching colors in-situ.

Shout out to @tacomaartslive for receiving the 2019 SHPO Award for Outstanding Rehabilitation – Valerie Sivinski Award--for the Pantages Theater restoration!
For its centennial year in 2018, the historic Pantages Theater in Tacoma saw completion of a major restoration and rehabilitation which returned the theater to its former glory. A designated Tacoma Landmark and listed in the National Register of Historic Places, the Pantages is owned by the City of Tacoma and managed by Tacoma Arts Live, a non‐profit organization dedicated to energizing the community through live performances. Saved from the wrecking ball in 1979, the Pantages Theater is a testament to the power of public‐private partnerships that came together to grow the local economy through the performing arts and preservation of the Pantages and nearby Rialto Theater. Benefitted by the generosity of an impressive list of private and public funders, the primary goal for the rehabilitation work was to restore the theater’s interior aesthetics as close to its original design as possible while integrating modern safety features and amenities that improved functionality. Nationally recognized preservation experts were engaged to clean, repair, and in some cases, restore lavish plaster-work, art, and paint. This commitment to a meticulous restoration of the building, inside and out, has brought the Pantages back to being the city’s premiere arts and entertainment venue. @tacomaartslive
