Hollywood, Los Angeles County,
The Christie Hotel had undergone not only environmental damage but also ‘aesthetic’ revisions so that an adaptive reuse by the owners required brick and terra cotta reproduction as well as the restoration of existing historic fabric. All of our work had to be conducted using boom lifts, since the building’s architecture would not allow the rigging of suspended swing stages. We also used specialty repair mortars designed specifically for terra cotta repairs, to patch and recreate the mottled glazed surface. The restoration was successful in putting the original design back in place.
