Bronze, Steel & Glass Marquee

Working from historical photographs alone, Mison Concepts had to fabricate a bronze, steel and glass marquee for this Central Park West building that would be approved by New York City’s Landmark Commission as a historically accurate recreation of the custom metal fabrication used in the original. We used a dark-finished patina to achieve an antique look for the bronze and captured the intricate details of the cornice using currently available ornamental metal elements to stay on budget. By updating the glass composite, curved roof and dental metal detailing, however, we were able to meet more contemporary building safety standards.
