Bowery Savings Bank

New York, NY

1,500 square feet

The Bowery Savings Bank, completed in the early 20th century and currently owned by SL Green Realty Corp., has both its exterior and interior landmarked by the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission. GKV Architects was tasked with the challenge of restoring its main lobby, public corridors and elevator cabs. The elevator cabs are designed with etched-glass and ornamental bronze doors. The lobby, featuring azure-tile mosaic ceiling vaults, is re-lamped with the original chandeliers.
