Project Details

The window design maintains the architectural and historic character of the building, the street, and the Upper East side Historic District and had to be approved by the NY Landmark Commission. For this, we specified windows with a welded steel muntin grid and black powder coat finish as depicted in original renderings of the building. The glazing work could have no significant impact on the protected features of the building.

The window system had to create physically and environmentally secure envelope; yet also be visually light and operate smoothly. It must minimize heat loss during the winter and heat gain during the summer. The windows exhibit a high level of craft and durability which contributes to the longevity of the building and protects the contents of the interior.
