Port Chester – Rye Brook Public Library

Historic Restoration

Restoration of the marble, cornice, frieze, and balustrade on a 1926 Stanford and White Historic Library including: brick restoration, masonry restoration, parapet and roofing. Lothrop Associates’ role in this small but important project focused primarily on preserving and restoring the marble, cornice and balustrade for the next 100 years. Paying special attention to detail to arrest “sugaring” of the Georgia Cherokee Marble and critical coordination of adjoining roofing and copper flashing are paramount.

This work is part of a 5 Year Strategic Plan developed by Lothrop Associates in 2017. Future work includes the restoration and preservation of the remaining marble elements including ornamental stringcourse and carved front door surround.
