Work in the 100-year-old building included the restoration and replication of several unique elements that originated in the building including copper roofing, Caen stone, limestone, Scagliola, ornamental plaster, Lincrusta, ornamental light fixtures, ornamental metalwork, and replicated furniture. In all Mascaro installed over 14 miles of quartersawn white oak trim and successfully secured the resources necessary to install the other uncommon materials.
