Riverside Memorial Chapel

Renovations to a landmark 1927 funeral home on Manhattan's Upper West Side. The work involved restoration of exterior masonry, metalwork, and windows, extensive upgrading of mechanical and electrical systems, and restoration of principal interior spaces. Careful paint analysis was undertaken to determine and restore original color schemes. The new multi-scene lighting of the main chapel involved the creative retrofitting of historic fixtures and the subtle introduction of sophisticated new architectural lighting. The project received a 1994 IES Lumen Award.
