Built by tailor Edwin Goodman on the site of the Cornelius Vanderbilt II mansion in 1928, the store for high end fashion retailer, Bergdorf Goodman, had been subject to a number of renovations prior to this most recent one.
EverGreene engaged in a four phase project on the store from November 2015 until September 2016, opening in time for New York Fashion Week. The project included a large amount of ornamental plaster repair, replication, and restoration throughout the first level of the store.
EverGreene matched crown molding and repaired damaged plaster on the ceiling, walls, and beams. Our craftsmen also created new ceiling medallions and intricate rocaille-style pieces for the ceiling center and corners, adopting a design-build construction style. EverGreene designed the pieces and hand sculpted them, using historic photos, the architecture of the building, and the client’s wishes as influence. The store remained open to customers throughout the construction process.
