Woolworth Building Restoration

YVStudio just finished restoring the elevator doors on the 5th floor of the iconic Woolworth Building.

Built in 1912 this National Historic Landmark is still one of the 30 tallest buildings in New York. It was designed in the neo-Gothic style by architect Cass Gilbert, who was also responsible for the United States Supreme Court building.

In recent past the 14 sets of elevator doors on the fifth floor had been painted over. YVStudio stripped the old paint layers and recreated the original green color and gold design.

YVStudio was hired by BAR Construction.

The fifth floor will become home to the New York City Law Department, Office of the Corporate Counsel.

Today, the rest of the building houses, among other tenants, TTA Inc., Control Group Inc., AIGA, and the New York University School of Professional Studies’ Center for Global Affairs.
