Silver leaf elevator door

At a magnificent art deco building near Manhattan’s Metropolitan Museum YVStudio gilded a residence’s elevator entrance, the door and the panel above.

This penthouse apartment project was executed in silver leaf, keeping with the silvery elements on the building’s facade and the gilded lobby ceiling.

After applying the silver leaf in a perfect grid, the surfaces received a acrylic poly-urethane for durability.

A slightly bluish-white transparent glaze coat was applied, for an enhanced elegant look.
