The Parkway theater was designed by Oliver Birkhead Wight. It was one of the original movie palaces on the east coast, and opened on October 15th, 1915.
EverGreene was contracted to conduct a plaster conditions assessment and historic finishes investigation in public areas. The most unique element of the project was creating a ‘look and feel’ to resemble a stabilized ruin. EverGreene implemented the design scheme, stabilizing the salvageable plaster and then removing unsafe and unsound plaster. For the historic finishes investigation, the EverGreene team sealed, consolidated, stabilize and toned the paint in areas to integrate the new work.
