Park Avenue Armory Pilot Rooms

New York, NY

As part of a comprehensive rehabilitation and restoration of the Park Avenue Armory, EverGreene performed extensive treatments on painted plaster surfaces.

In Company Room D, EverGreene carefully removed the post-historic bas-relief plaster panels, composition ornament, and non-original overpaint from the ceiling and walls.

In Company Room E, EverGreene methodically removed post-historic plaster strapwork and bosses from the ceiling, which was followed by a intensive paint stabilization campaign, and then “delayering”  of non-original coatings (both chemically and mechanically), back down to the 1880′s presenting layers.
