We collaborated with New York Life to both modernize and restore the historic 13th-floor executive suite of this landmarked building on Madison Avenue, improving technology, ventilation, and overall functionality while preserving the craftsmanship of the original Cass Gilbert interior. The project involved cataloging, removing, restoring, and reinstalling eighteen-foot-high wood paneling, along with producing matching panels, doors, molding, and hardware for damaged or modified areas. Additionally, a significant parallel project added a large terrace above, requiring reinforced steel across the ceiling below. By stripping away past renovations and integrating new systems, the project seamlessly married historical elegance with modern functionality, revitalizing a distinctive, period space for executive use.
