CBBLD Principal Stephen D. Bernstein will discuss the renovation of Grace Church with Kevin Daly of Walter B. Melvin Architects, in a seminar presented for the 2015 Open House New York (OHNY) Weekend. The seminar, presented by the Illuminating Engineering Society’s New York City Section (IESNYC), explores the restoration and relighting of the church, an NYC landmark designed by James Renwick in 1846. The project – a collaboration between CBBLD and the architect – renewed the elegance, drama, and wonder that had been lost in previous renovations of this historic house of worship.
The seminar will be held at Grace Church (802 Broadway, between 10th and 11th Avenues) on Saturday, October 17 at 10:00 AM and again at 11:00 AM. Attendance is open to the public and free of charge.
Open House New York is a non-profit organization whose key mission is promoting public awareness and appreciation of New York City’s built environment.
