Have you ever been inside the St. Sophia Greek Orthodox Cathedral (LA’s largest Greek Orthodox church and LA Historic Cultural Monument #120)? Its amazing. Back in 2001, we documented and conserved of all twenty-one painted icons that fit into the altar screen. We also restored the painted surfaces and gilding on the altar screen, throne and pulpit.
Check out Doug Santo’s pictures of the cathedral on flickr, they’re beautiful.
(oops a day late) Restoration work in progress at the Raymond Theater in Pasadena (now the Raymond Renaissance) completed in 2009. Check out our project page for more Before and After pictures of our work.
Work is in progress on a mural restoration/recreation at the historic Warner Grand Theatre in San Pedro. This beautiful art deco movie palace originally opened in 1931, and is on the National register is also LA historic Cultural Monument #251. We’ve completed a couple of restoration projects here over the last 5 years.
Five years ago we were putting the finishing touches on the decorative surfaces during the restoration of the Blossom Ballroom at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel (home of the very first Academy Awards and an LA Historic Cultural Monument).
Did you see our presentation at the LA Conservancy tour of the Wilshire Boulevard Temple last weekend? We mixed over 110 custom paint colors and used over 20,000 sheets of gold leaf during our restoration work!
