LIMESTONE - THE WILLIAMSBURGH SAVINGS BANK, WILLIAMSBURG
A long-languishing icon of Brooklyn architecture has been meticulously restored to its original 1875 glory. The entire space inside and out was in complete disrepair; with a century’s worth of grime and numerous layers of paint covering the limestone walls. Through months of painstaking work, Opus’s team alongside many talented craftsmen and women completely transformed the space back to its original splendor. This architectural icon is now open to the public as an event space to be marveled at by all.
Opus is honored to be an award-winning recipient of Excellence in Historic Preservation from the Preservation League of New York State for their hard work and dedication on this extensive restoration project.
