Our renovation of this aging church restored the building to its former splendor, with special care taken to preserve the original details. On the exterior, damaged moldings were restored and a new glass canopy was built over the entry. The roof was rebuilt and its wooden trusses slowly raised and repaired. A skylight in the chancel that had been tarred over and damaged through years of neglect was repaired and reopened.
Our restoration allowed the church to reopen to the public after nearly a decade. Today the space is made available to local institutions for concerts, lectures, support groups and other events. The New Church Swedenborgian has been written up in the New York Times and has won the AIA Interfaith Forum on Religion Art and Architecture Restoration Award.
