Restoration

Trinity Church Wall St

New York, NY

                Starting in 2019, Trinity Church Wall St underwent a $112 million “rejuvenation” project. The project was led by Murphy Burnham and Buttrick architect firm and Sciame Construction at the general contractor. A Trinity Church has stood at Wall St and Broadway since 1696. The church that stands today is the third building from 1846 and is the work of Richard Upjohn.

                Femenella was contracted to restore most of the stained glass in the building. The stained glass is an important part of the church because it’s a rare example of early American stained-glass. The chancel window was removed and was ethically conserved in the studio. The window was reinstalled with an iso-thermal setting. The nave aisle windows, dating back to 1845, were also removed for conservation in the studio. The unique ‘pineapple designed’ diamonds were repaired or replaced to give each panel new life. The panels were also releaded, carefully cleaned, and protective glazing was added to protect the windows. Various other windows in the church were cleaned and repaired in-situ such as the Charles Booth windows in the rear addition.

                We are grateful to have worked with a great conservation team including Drew Anderson from The Met and Brianne Kozlowski from Liberty Stained Glass Conservation.
