Landmark Preservation

History

Originally built in 1898, 867 Madison Avenue stands as an architectural gem in the heart of New York City. Built in the Beaux Arts style, his magnificent structure, known as the Rhinelander Mansion, earned the title of landmark in 2001 by the Landmark preservation Commission.

Nearly a century later in 1983, fashion icon Ralph Lauren transformed the mansion into a flagship store. Under his guidance, the mansion underwent meticulous renovations, ensuring its historical significance remained intact. 

 Today, our restoration project aims to honor the legacy of 867 Madison Avenue while ensuring its longevity for generations to come. Led by Howard Zimmerman Architects and AMP Engineers, DPC, our team is dedicated to preserving the mansion’s architectural integrity.

Concrete is one of the most frequently used building materials. It is used extensively for a wide range of construction work, such as footpaths, driveways and roads, residential and commercial construction – floors and walls, foundations and footings, for posts, fences and walls, and even boat hulls.
Precast concrete is typically stronger than natural cut limestone, but it doesn’t have the look of natural cut stone. Cast Stone, on the other hand, solves both problems. Cast Stone can be stronger than precast concrete and is easily cast to produce identical pieces.

Architectural metalwork is a unique factor in the building process that involves using metalwork practices to create structures that are not only functional but also have a strong aesthetic role to play too. It is the bringing together of metalwork and architecture.
Architectural steel fabrication often involves the use of decorative elements, such as ornamental railings, staircases, and facades. On the other hand, structural steel fabrication is concerned with the strength and stability of the building.
