Restoring Ornamental Plaster on an Historic Lobby Ceiling

EverGreene has spent the past five months stripping paint coatings and repairing plaster cracks and uneven surfaces in the incredibly elaborate lobby of an historic residential building on Central Park West. The lobby was repainted multiple times since it was built in 1908 — in our historic paint analysis we discovered the original scheme (glazing with gold tipping) underneath as many as 25 coatings! The freshly redecorated space will include glazing with a contemporary twist on the original scheme.
