Armstrong World Industries at Liberty Street
Glass doors provide an inviting glimpse into the renovated lobby as visitors approach the main entrance to this spacious office building, a namesake building for one of Lancaster’s most prestigious companies. The original carved marble door surround was preserved and provides a dramatic statement that combines historic and contemporary features at the entrance.
The complexities of supporting the marble while using existing anchors installed in the original stones required us to visually inspect the original work by mounting the scaffolding during the construction process. We then obtained and used old drawings from an antique edition of “Architectural Graphic Standards” to work out all the attachment details.
