New York Public Library, Rose Reading Room

New York, NY

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’s work included providing 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 will reopen in October 2016.
