In New York City, the Veteran's Room in the Park Avenue Armory (1881) has just received an award for restoration and renovation......this room was basically designed by the Tiffany firm's various artists.

The room was built for and by the first group of men who had responded to Lincoln's call for the Civil War.

We restored the Tiffany windows, provided a few replacement tiles for the
fire place and some cast glass for the dragon frieze above the mantle.  Fun
project.

The project also won a LUCY, the preservation award from the NY Landmarks Conservancy and the Friends of the Upper East Side Historic Districts awarded the 2017 Interior Restoration Award.

Here is a trailer and a time lapse video of the project.
